EP13: Tackling Loneliness & Building Intergenerational Connections - The Cares Family, England
Play • 49 min

According to various studies over 40% of us will feel the aching pangs of loneliness at some point in our lives. Loneliness is experienced by people of all ages, all genders, all cultures and the feeling of disconnection has dramatically increased since 2020.
Yet despite how common loneliness is, we never talk about it. It's a secret we all share. But just because you feel lonely doesn't mean you have to remain lonely.

The Cares Family is a British organisation that builds connection in a disconnected age. Find out why loneliness is not only a personal challenge, but how it effects our respective health systems. In this episode you'll meet Corinne and Eleanor who share their intergenerational stories from baking sessions to doing shots at a party. And Rich, a Cares' staff member, shares why it's up to each one of us to create the community and connection we are looking for.

After all, we are all sharing the human experience and if you dare, you might discover that The Supremes where right: Age really is nothing but a number.
