Alzheimer's--Feeling Abandoned?

You should consider asking your parent(s)if they are lonely. See how lonely seniors answered on the next page.


New research suggests lonely people are at greater risk of developing dementia. Seniors who scored high on the loneliness quiz agreed with three or more of the following scenarios:

• I experience a general sense of emptiness.

• I miss having people around.

• I feel like I don't have enough friends.

• I often feel abandoned.

• I miss having really good friends.
