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.
PetPals volunteers visit elders in 43 nursing homes, assisted living facilities and adult day care centers. The wonderful pets who are part of the Team provide comfort, joy and companionship on an on-going basis and the gratitude of the elders we serve is evident in every smile we see and in every pat that they give.
The Walk to End Elder Isolation is our 4th Annual Walk. Please join our team or form your own and walk with us! If you are able, please donate - any amount helps.
Help make a difference in the life of an elder.
