Special care must be taken when the society reaches numbers like these.
 An increase in deaths by suicide  in the baby boomer generation can be related to the economic turmoil of late, but, the needs of those living alone, must be met, too.

   If you have neighbors, friends or family members living alone, remember to keep in touch, and check on their health and safety regularly.

Are you helping elderly neighbors? How?
