lonely seniors

i went to visit the drop-in center in a church building (three years ago), a gentleman introduced to me that he was not a houseless one, but he is a lonely man …he just need a place he can find someone he feel safe to talk to..he told me many seniors living alone feel scared of being alone…so they rather spend most of their day in the food courts, coffee shops…i thanked him i was not lonely because of him..we became neighbor to each other…need more reflection…

I wonder what happened to those “lonely” seniors in the midst of pandemic and social gathering restrictions.
