Older people who reported feeling lonely were more than 2.5 times more likely to develop dementia than those who said they didn't feel lonely, according to a Dutch study in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry. The study followed more than 2,000 people for three years and found that dementia developed in about 6% of those who lived with others and about 9% of those who lived alone.
