Event Details

Join the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP) and the Administration for Community Living (ACL) Office of Nutrition and Health Promotion Programs (ONHPP) for a Spotlight on Health webinar on Monday, August 10, at 2:00 p.m. ET. The webinar will highlight innovative solutions to address social isolation in older adults during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Prior to the pandemic, 43 percent of adults age 60 or older in the United States reported feeling lonely. Social isolation and feelings of loneliness can be heightened during physical distancing and stay-at-home orders. This webinar will highlight local programs that have developed unique solutions to combat social isolation — and that continue to address the diverse needs of older adults during the COVID-19 pandemic. We’ll discuss:

Updated guidance and resources available to support Aging Networks developed by ACL

A Wellness Recovery Action Plan to help older adults stay healthy and connected to their communities

A unique partnership deploying the real-time, practical use of the Upstream Social Isolation Risk Screener (U-SIRS) by Area Agencies on Aging and community health workers in Maryland
