The COVID-19 pandemic has made it harder for seniors to connect with loved ones, go to work, and volunteer in their communities. As Bob Kelly argues in this op-ed, the loss of seniors in the public sphere has come at a tremendous cost to the San Diego region.
CBS 8's LaMonica Peters reports on SDSCF's No Senior Alone initiative and how it's helping socially isolated seniors endure the long COVID-19 winter.
Weeks after launching the $1 million No Senior Alone initiative, SDSCF announced our first round of grant awards. Board member Derek Quackenbush talked to KUSI about the work our grantees are doing.
New research confirms that the increase in isolation during COVID-19 amounts to its own public health crisis. According to a survey by the AARP Foundation and United Health Foundation, two-thirds of U.S. adults report experiencing social isolation since the pandemic began.
Money from the No Senior Alone initiative will be distributed to senior-serving nonprofits around San Diego County to support their work helping vulnerable seniors stay connected to loved ones and bridge the digital divide.
