The Epidemic of Elder Isolation
Social isolation and loneliness hurt the heart and soul of seniors. Elder isolation is now considered an epidemic, with the health dangers equal to smoking 15 cigarettes a day.
As you all know I walk in the shoes of elders every day both in my professional career and in my family life. I understand just how important a friendly visitor is to those that are isolated and lonely for the myriad of reasons impacting folks as they age.
The Walk to End Elder Isolation is our 4th Annual Walk. We need YOU to make this the best Walk yet. Our ambitious goal is to raise $110,000 to reduce elder isolation in Boston and Brookline.
Please support this walk in honor or memory of a special elder in your life, or dedicate the walk to an important friendship.
Feel freel to join me on Sunday, May 19 for fun and friendship, music and food, and make a difference in the life of an elder.
