Abstract

The report aims to provide a review of current literature that brings together knowledge about the extent and nature of loneliness among older people.This will help to clarify current thinking about what a "good practice" or service looks like and start to identify likely models of good practice in North Yorkshire.The report looks at how loneliness and social isolation are understood in the literature, why they should be important concerns of local strategic organisations, such as health and wellbeing boards, and what might be done. This evidence is set in the context of the geography and demography of North Yorkshire and suggestions for future work are made.
