Health Tip: Elderly Companionship

(HealthDay News) — Loneliness is a common source of stress among the elderly. Older men and women who have companionship live longer than those without, a recent study in JAMA Internal Medicine suggests.
Figuring out how to prevent loneliness can be difficult, but companionship can take many forms.

Those who can help include:

    • Family, friends or a partner.
    • Live-in carergivers.
    • Pets.

Talk to your loved one to see which option is best.
