CIRCLE OF FRIENDS
For older adults who report feeling lonely, group interventions can be effective in alleviating lonliness and/or social isolation. Royal Adult Day staff have completed training offered by St. Louis University Geriatric Center and will soon implement the Circle of Friends model to combat social isolation.
Circle of Friends involves meeting together or virtually for 12 sessions and engaging with others who report feeling lonely. Each session includes creativity, health/exercise, reflection and discussion.
Research has demonstrated that loneliness and health care visits are reduced.
