The Influence of Depression, and Family and Friendship Relations, on Residents' Loneliness in Congregate Housing.
Mullins, Larry C.; Dugan, Elizabeth
Gerontologist, v30 n3 p377-84 Jun 1990
Examined impact of various social relationships on level of loneliness reported by 208 elderly residents of 10 senior housing apartments, controlling for depression. Subjects who were less satisfied with quality of their relationships and had less contact with close friends were more lonely. Whether one had children, grandchildren, siblings, or neighbors had no significant effect on reported loneliness. (Author/NB)
