Survey: Aging Alone and the Care of Older Patients

It has been said that the rise of living alone is one of the greatest social changes we know the least about. Higher divorce rates and smaller, more geographically separated families mean that many older adults today are aging alone with few social resources. What this means for the care of older adults is poorly understood. This survey forms part of my doctoral research which includes studies of health survey data linked to health care utilization records of older adults.

The survey will take approximately 10 minutes and your participation will be anonymous. If you have any questions about this research, please feel free to contact me ( or my supervisor, Professor Nancy Ross ( If you have any questions about your rights or treatment as a survey respondent in this study, please contact McGill University’s Research Ethics Board through email at or by phone at 514-398-2267, reference REB #67-0715.

Thank you so much for taking time out to support doctoral research.
