Senior isolation is an epidemic affecting nearly 40% of older adults. Research shows that social isolation is linked to increased mortality rates and other adverse health effects such as increased risk of hospitalization, falls and dementia. On April 26, the Department of Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services hosted the Older Adult Social Isolation Roundtable at City Hall to address the negative health effects of social isolation. Over 80 providers, practitioners, community members and partners attended this informative event. Assemblymember Ash Kalra moderated the roundtable of advocates. The panel members were insightful and passionate, while group discussions allowed attendees to engage through sharing ideas and needs.
