FoossaPod: Klaatch on Design for Meaningful Connections and Healthy Seniors

Loneliness kills. 

Fortune Magazine analyzed findings from 70 scientific studies. They found that loneliness, isolation, and living alone all had a significant effect on a person's risk for early death. 

Loneliness affects people of all ages, but older people are particularly vulnerable.  

In this episode of Foossapod, we hear from Meli Glenn and Adam Green from Klaatch.

Klaatch is a service that is ending loneliness among seniors. 

Klaatch removes the barriers to making meaningful connections, in-person, that create lasting change and improve healthy aging.
