Social Isolation and Loneliness

 

FREE when booked alongside a single or series of courses from our range. 

 

 

Social isolation and loneliness is associated with increased blood pressure and depression, and leads to higher rates of mortality. (1)

 

Depression affects 1 in 5 older people living in the community and 2 in 5 living in care homes. (2)

 

Fear of being alone is a major source of anxiety as people grow old. Some older people go for days without contact from another person; many die alone. (3)

 

 

In this course, candidates explore wide ranging evidence revealing the detrimental effects of social isolation and loneliness before investigating strategies implemented by local authorities, community groups and charities to combat loneliness in older people. Candidates are encouraged by tutors during the plenary stage of the session to put forward practical and innovative ideas to supplement local and national efforts.  

 

 

 

Learners will...

  • Explore subjective and objective viewpoints of loneliness
  • Distinguish between 'social' and 'emotional' loneliness
  • Identify key transitions, risk factors and influences which may make an older person susceptible to loneliness  
  • Evaluate the impact of social isolation and loneliness on older people
  • Investigate central and local government policy, projects and charitable efforts to tackle and prevent social isolation and loneliness among older people
  • Justify why one strategy will not suit all 
  • Share suggestions, ideas and proposals for individual and or organisational solutions and interventions. 
  • Navigate, create, edit and share information using digital devices
  • Collate electronic evidence of learning for professional exhibition
