Risks from ‘social frailty’

From Kaiser Health News, some words about the concept of social frailty. We all understand physical frailty. Many of us have seen it in our parents, grandparents, or other older relatives or friends, even sometimes our spouses. Social frailty is poverty of the social network in which one lives. Like physical frailty, it seems to be associated with poor health outcomes.

Village members will be able to call on our volunteers for friendly visits and assistance, making Cville Village an antidote to social frailty. Bring it on!
