Let's retire loneliness- City of edmonton campaign video
Senior isolation and loneliness affects 50 percent of people over the age of 80. The City of Edmonton introduced the Hello! How Are You initiative in 2015, under which the Let's Retire Loneliness campaign was initiated to spread awareness about senior isolation and loneliness. This video is the first of a three part series which help spread the information to Edmonton about the prevalence of this matter and how to connect with seniors.
“Increasing connection between seniors and Edmontonians can be as easy as smiling, starting a friendly conversation, or walking with them down the street. The impacts of loneliness and isolation among our senior population can be devastating, we can end it and you can help.” said Councillor Mohinder Banga.
