Can a senior living in a care facility with ninety other residents be socially isolated? Certainly. Social isolation is not only about being alone or having visitors. It is also about having choices respected and having opportunities to start or keep meaningful relationships. This handbook provides a unique opportunity to hear seniors talk about their lives in care facilities. It will help seniors, their families and friends, care-facility staff, volunteers and management, and governments better understand what seniors living in care facilities feel is important in their lives.
