How Two Lonely Generations Are Helping Each Other Heal
The pandemic is not just making many of us sick, it is making virtually all of us lonelier, according to a Harvard report based on a national survey of 950 Americans issued in February.
The loneliest people, as a group, are young adults. About half of 18- to 25-year-olds reported that not a single person in the past few weeks had “taken more than a few minutes” to ask how they are doing in a way that seemed genuinely caring. The second loneliest demographic appears to be the elderly, said the report’s lead researcher, Richard Weissbourd, a psychologist who teaches at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
