Why Bommasoft:

  • A lot of loneliness occurs among seniors. Not only with elderly people who live independently at home, but also with residents in a residential care center.

Research:

According to a survey by KU Leuven commissioned by the King Baudouin Foundation, it appears that about half of the over-65 plus in our country feel lonely. In the report of the King Baudouin Foundation, a number of risk factors for loneliness are listed.

  • Only from 75 or 80 years old solitude increases.
  • It would not be about age alone, but about the fact that a higher age is associated with a greater chance of risk factors that determine loneliness, such as poor health or the death of the partner.
  • We count not only more lonely and socially isolated among the oldest seniors, but also among women, widows and widowers and seniors with health problems.
  • The number of social residents is greater among seniors living at home than among seniors in residential care centers with fewer children and a smaller social network.
  • There is more social isolation among the residents of residential care centers who also want more contact more often, especially with their grandchildren.
