@0616, what a great question! I changed the title of this discussion to reflect the topic and your question. I also added it to the Aging Well group as well as the Just Want to Talk group. I can wait to see the tips members will offer. Here's a couple of mine:
– Taking part in an online support group like this one, Mayo Clinic Connect.
You'd be surprised how much good members do for other members with just a simple "I hear you." or "You're not alone." Sharing your experiences is an act of kindness
– Get hip a youngster and text.
As we age, our friend circle diminishes. But the young still need us. Text with a young member of the family or friend circle. Their responses may be short, but you'll give them the gift of a different perspective when they need it. (I'm sure they don't say "hip." Apparently in today's youth lingo hip = "sick")
