For many of us, the holidays can be the loneliest time of the year.  

Over eight-million older adults struggle with loneliness and social isolation, and unfortunately the rates are rising. Over 40-percent of adults have worried about a lonely friend or family member over the holidays. 

AARP launched a website, connect2affect.org, to help adults over the age of 50 make those crucial social connections. 

The best thing to do to fight this epidemic is to knock on a neighbor's door to check in and pick up the phone to call distant relatives.
