Today we have a special look at a pressing issue within aged care, Loneliness.

To help us unpack the issue we’re joined by Professors Johanna Badcock and John Pollaers both representing Ending Loneliness Together.

In this conversation we look at just how big a problem loneliness is, how it effects not just care recipients but also care workers, and some potential technologies that could reduce the impacts of loneliness.

This episode was a really fascinating and great to hear both a clinical and a business perspective on what’s often a forgotten topic.

We hope you enjoy our loneliness special with Johanna Badcock and John Pollaers.
