Rachel Weldrick, a research assistant at the Gilbrea Centre for the Studies in Aging and PhD student at McMaster University, attended the Canadian Association on Gerontology 2016 conference – ‘Fostering Innovation in Research on Aging’ held in Montreal, QC (October 20-22, 2016). While at the conference, she presented a poster on the Hamilton Seniors Isolation Impact Plan. The poster presents a brief conceptual review based on research conducted by the Gilbrea Centre during the literature review phase of the project. The poster discusses how social isolation is defined, and how it is often confused with related terms and concepts (such as loneliness). The poster also makes preliminary recommendations for next steps in this domain.
