Home Instead is dedicated to reducing loneliness and social isolation – especially among older adults and family caregivers. We wanted to share the following information about a
global survey launched by a group of international academic researchers who are part of the
International Loneliness and Isolation research NetworK (I-LINK). Physical distancing and restriction of movements as measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19 requires people to change their work, home and social lives. It is suspected that more people than ever before are experiencing loneliness and social isolation due to Covid-19 restrictions. This survey aims find out if that is the case and build the evidence base.The anonymous online survey is for people aged 18+ and includes questions on demographics, health, health behaviors, loneliness, isolation and personal experiences around Covid-19.
