Evidence

Although it is unclear whether it is good health that follows from or leads to social connectedness, the two are interrelated. In the 2003 CCHS, 62 per cent of seniors who reported a strong sense of community belonging also reported good health, compared to only 49 per cent of those who felt less connected.
