The Project to Reduce and Cope with Feelings of Loneliness among Older Adults
The study had three main goals: 1. To examine the contribution of each program implemented in a locality to the older adults participating (the individual level); 2. To examine each program’s contribution to further addressing the issue of loneliness in every locality where it was conducted (the field level); 3. To formulate insights and recommendations about the programs to reduce loneliness (the policy level).
