When a person is isolated from society, it becomes evident to how essential social interaction truly is. Isolation can be defined as a reduction in the level of sensory and social stimulation experienced, with possible limitation on physical space or movement, potentially leading to feelings of loneliness (Gilmartin, Grota & Sousa, 2013). To further identify the concept of isolation, Gilmartin et al (2013) defines two major attributes that will be discussed, this includes social isolation and confinement. Social isolation refers to an individual who is separated from other persons, consequently interfering with the ability to communicate.
