Time Left: 1 week

According to TIME magazine, one in three older Americans are lonely – and that number is on the rise. Here are a few comparisons to bring the reality closer to home.

  • Loneliness increases the likelihood of mortality by 26 percent.
  • Lacking social connections is as damaging to health as smoking 15 cigarettes a day.
  • Coronary bypass patients who report feeling lonely have a mortality rate 5 times higher than other patients 30 days post-surgery.
  • Lonely individuals have a 64 percent increased chance of developing clinical dementia.
  • People who are lonely report 5 percent more severe symptoms in the common cold than those who are less lonely.
  • Those who are extremely socially isolated cost about $130 per month more in Medicare spending than their non- or less-isolated counterparts.

Rather than seeing friends and family succumb to the isolation of loneliness, [email protected] was founded as an antidote to isolation. What started out in 1982 at a Western Massachusetts elderly housing project has developed into the phenomena known as the [email protected] Chorus. Their goal is simple, for people to joyfully pass the time instead of passing before their time.
