Over the covid-19 pandemic, nearly all of us felt isolated from the world due to worldwide restrictions. However, this is nothing new for those living by themselves in the elderly community. According to the Royal Voluntary Service in the UK, more than a million people over seventy-five say that they go over a month without seeing’s family, friends or even a neighbour. I wanted to bring this issue to the surface as the older generation is often forgotten about, especially when it comes to managing mental health.
