Social isolation is experienced when people have limited contact with others. It affects many older people and is associated with a range of physical and mental health problems. It is, therefore, a significant health concern, particularly for an ageing population. This project investigates the use of novel technologies to prevent and to ameliorate social isolation experienced by older adults.
