AARP Foundation, with the American Society on Aging, explores the health impacts of social isolation among older adults, and looks at the current recommendations and solutions to prevent and mitigate its negative effects. This timely series comes at an unprecedented moment in America, as the novel coronavirus thrusts millions of older adults into greater physical isolation from family, friends and neighbors. As these events unfold, it will be more important than ever for healthcare professionals and those in the aging services sector to understand the importance of social connections and strategies to support healthy social engagement and inclusion. Register for this two-part web seminar to learn about the latest research, screening and measurement methods, recommendations and best practices.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Describe the ethical and practical considerations for interventions; 
  • Describe current interventions in health care and the community; and,
  • Discuss the importance of community partnerships in combatting social isolation.
