LETTER: Isolation can be another form of homelessness

YOUR SAY: Homelessness is more than sleeping rough.

Homelessness doesn't happen overnight. The causes are many and a remedy is not simple.

Then there is another kind of homelessness. Isolation and loneliness can produce a feeling of homelessness and the remedy for that is not simple either.

That sort of homelessness is not restricted to any age group.
