Seniors - what's been going on

27 July 2015 - Would you like more company?

Half of older New Zealanders experience some degree of loneliness. However, studies show staying socially connected can have benefits for both our physical and mental wellbeing

If you’re an older person who is feeling lonely or would like more social contact, you can get in touch Age Concern to find out about their accredited Visiting Service (AVS). AVS befriending service that provides regular visits to older people who would like more company.

Find out more about the AVS service on Age Concern’s website

You can also find more ideas on staying socially connected on the Office for Senior Citizens' page
