Community Connections Takes on Social Isolation

Posted on 12/31/20 by The AARP Bulletin

More than just mood killers, social isolation and loneliness can lead to serious physical ailments, including heart disease, depression, stroke and premature death.

AARP’s Community Connections site offers a way for people to interact virtually with others in their area during the coronavirus pandemic.

People can also receive a “Friendly Voice” call from a volunteer. AARP Arkansas is looking for volunteers to help with the program in their community. Visit for more information.
