1 in 7 with Dementia

| No Comments

Memory in the modern age fascinates me. I just read about the increasing numbers of people with dementia who live alone, whether by choice, divorce, death, or living away from family. The overall cost to the country for medical care will be huge and growing. I wonder, though, how we can better serve people who are living alone to make their better. Are there organizations that need to be developed, interventions that might be tried, neighborhood groups organized so we can look after each other? Certainly, people are doing things, but I don't think it will be enough. Anyone have good ideas about how we can organize locally to address loneliness in general and this kind of loneliness in specific?
