Homeshare Happenings

Carol spent decades teaching in Vermont. Katie was moving to Vermont to take a teaching position at UVM. They found each other through HomeShare Vermont last summer. Carol feels like she’s gained another daughter…one who can take care of her cat when she travels to visit her four children. Katie now has an unofficial tour guide of Vermont and a wonderful place to live while she’s teaching here. Read their story in Homeshare Vermont’s February Newsletter

Loneliness, loss and regret

Loneliness, loss and regret: what getting old really feels like – new study

Thank you to Joyce Craveiro of Lar no Lar for making us aware of a great report at on “Loneliness, loss & regret: what getting old really feels like – new study” This research is part of The Loneliness Project – a large-scale, in-depth exploration of how older people experience loneliness and what it means for them. (It also quotes HI President Malcolm Johnson.)

Older topics at include “How loneliness in older people makes them more vulnerable to financial scammers” and “Loneliness has serious health risks and the solution is social“.
