Almost a third of all non-institutionalized older persons in the United States live alone, which is giving rise to a new epidemic: Social Isolation and Loneliness among older adults are a prevalent concern in North America and have been shown to increase mortality risk by 29% and 26% respectively.

However, light-to-moderate exercise like cardio can counter this risk by significantly
reducing rates of depression and increasing social functional levels. It also has proven positive
impacts on health outcomes such as lowering of BMI, cholesterol, and blood pressure.

Research shows that regular exercise is linked to fewer days of restricted activity, reduced
risk of institutionalization, and improvement for those living with dementia or experiencing
some form of memory loss.
