Older People Need Social Contacts

A study published in the British journal Ageing & Society found that older people who were stuck at home with a lack of contact with other people had emotional difficulties. To this, the researchers have found that being alone is also a health hazard.

This lack of contact with others contributed to elevated blood pressure, higher mortality rates, as well as, depression and suicide. So...if you have an elderly parent or friend, make sure they maintain social contacts in their lives.
