Social isolation rarely happens because of just one life event or situation. Many factors contribute to an increase in the risk of social isolation for seniors:

  • Living alone
  • Lack of participation in social activities
  • Poor health and mobility 
  • Financial challenges
  • Lack of accessible, affordable transportation
  • Life transitions such as retirement or loss of a spouse
  • Providing care to a partner, parent or friend
  • Unstable/insecure housing situation
  • Language barriers
  • Societal barriers such as ageism and lack of opportunities for seniors to contribute
  • Inequality (racial/ethnic minorities, LGBTQ)
  • Abuse
