But loneliness can be easily overlooked as a health risk because healthcare providers can neglect asking their older patients about their social lives, and many older adults are too proud or embarrassed to ask for help, experts say. Cedars-Sinai geriatricians suggest tips for seniors who may feel especially isolated during the holidays.
