No Senior Alone Initative

Social isolation has been dubbed “the new silent killer” and acknowledged by the World Health Organization as a public health crisis. Research shows the negative impact of isolation on a person’s health and well-being is equal to smoking 15 cigarettes a day – increasing the risk of chronic health conditions including depression, anxiety, dementia, malnutrition, physical decline, and death.

The COVID-19 pandemic has transformed daily life for all San Diegans, but few have been impacted more than seniors. While businesses and public spaces begin to reopen, older people have little choice but to stay home and avoid social contact for their own safety. It is unclear when normal life will resume for our region’s older adults. While social isolation was a pressing issue among older people even before the pandemic, COVID-19 has exacerbated the crisis.

Many of our oldest, most isolated, and low-income community members – particularly people of color – are facing tremendous hardship with limited access to nutritious food, stable housing, social connection, or preventative healthcare services.

During this trying time, San Diego Seniors Community Foundation is partnering with community-based organizations across San Diego County to support at-risk seniors and combat the negative effects of social isolation. Our guiding principal is to ensure that every local senior has someone they can turn to and trust. To this end, we are working to fund programs and projects that address the root causes of isolation, with a special focus on elder orphans and disadvantaged populations, to make a lasting impact on older adults in our region both during and after the pandemic.
