Senior centers and County office on aging

by Michael
(Upstate NY for the summer!)

Recently, I read an article that said the loneliest time for many seniors is during the summer when their families are busy with summer activities.

Many towns have senior centers and your local Office on Aging should have information about activities for seniors in your area.

Your local school district and hospitals are also good sources for offering your volunteer services. The Foster Grandparent Program and Big Brothers/Big Sisters are also other options.

If you have friends and family who are local, invite them over for a weekly lunch or dinner. Lastly, don't be afraid to share your feelings of loneliness with your family, friends, and medical doctor.
