Building an intergenerational friendship business and implications for population health
We hear a lot about loneliness among older adults, usually accompanied by distressing imagery and a cry for help. But loneliness doesn’t discriminate, and offering support is not a one-way street. And both giving support and receiving it comes with significant mental health benefits. This session looks at emerging intergenerational businesses built around friendship, what they learned during the COVID-19 pandemic and how it influenced their businesses, and why friendship has such an important part to play in wider population health improvement.
