The consequences of loneliness have been the subject of considerable research in recent years. The research has helped us better understand just how devastating an impact it has on our mental, emotional and physical health. It can creep into our lives as we age, and ravage the very foundation of our health. Singled out among other maladies associated with aging, loneliness has been declared a significant "silent killer" among older adults.
