Feelings of loneliness and isolation affect all people during their lives, although some are more likely to experience it than others. The elderly are particularly high risk, research shows that more than 20 per cent of people over age 60 frequently feel lonely.

As people age, friends and family age with them, and sometimes they are the last ones. Getting out to meet new people isn’t always easy. Physical limitations, like diminished sight and hearing, can make socialising more challenging.

Since there are risks associated with loneliness, it is important to help people of all ages connect. Just like promoting healthy eating and exercise and reducing drug and alcohol consumption, taking steps to increase social opportunities is important to public and personal health.

The expo focuses on connection opportunities for elderly people. There will be a range of vendors presenting what is available in the community, including:
- entertainment
- community groups
- things to do
- hobbies to get involved in
- and access to support

It’s free entry and includes a low-cost lunch.
