Ep 10: Confronting the Causes of Loneliness, Guest: Moira Kneer

Guest: Moira Kneer, retired chaplain, author, and caregiver

December 15, 2021

Loneliness and social isolation can be a major concern for older adults, putting them at higher risk for Alzheimer’s disease and other serious problems. In fact, one-quarter of adults 65 and older are classified as socially isolated. Life changes such as retirement and the death of a love done as well as factors like the COVID-19 pandemic can trigger loneliness.

In this episode, author and retired chaplain Moria Kneer speaks with host Lisa Wells of the Aging and Disability Resource Center of Eau Claire County about the difference between being alone and being lonely, the importance of identifying our underlying feelings, and strategies for reducing isolation as we grow older.
