National Coalition Tackles Elderly Social Isolation

Research shows that social isolation and loneliness is a growing problem affecting older adults nationwide. 

As a result, n4a has teamed up with the AARP Foundation, Gerontological Society of America, Give an Hour and UnitedHealth Group to bring greater public awareness to this important issue. 

The centerpiece of the campaign is a poignant video that you can use to educate the public in your community and spur interest in getting involved.

We also urge you to take a quick survey that will help us identify the community-based programs and services currently being used to address this problem. At the end of the survey, be sure to include your contact information to learn how you can participate in this important campaign.
