Why BIG’s #ageingbetter programme needs added digital innovation

Social Reporter

A recent study prompted the headline that loneliness is causing as many deaths among the elderly as cancer , and another that loneliness is more deadly than obesity – so it is clearly important to explore and share ways to tackle the issue as rapidly as possible.
