Seniors Living Alone Describe Health Very Good More Than Those Living With Others

Kaiser Health News (7/29, Bluth) reported a new study exploring the connection between older people’s health and their living arrangements published recently in the Journal of Applied Gerontology found that “people over 65 who live alone were more likely to describe their health as excellent or very good than were seniors who live with others.” The study’s results notwithstanding, the researchers said they were unable to draw any conclusion “about whether keeping a solitary household in old age leads to a longer life.”
