I recently participated in a panel discussion on social isolation with other experts on The Zoomer, hosted by Marissa Semkiw. The show aired nationally on VisionTV. In Canada, one in five people say they don't participate regularly in any social activity. StatsCan estimates that more than 30% of Canadian seniors are at high risk of isolation. I brought a comparative perspective to the discussion (Millennials vs. Zoomers) and warned about Millennials' relative comfort with being alone in the Digital Age and why this may be concerning for the future.
