So many of us have older adult loved ones in assisted living centers or nursing homes and during this pandemic seeing them can be challenging.


Dr. Craig Thomas serves as the Center for Disease Control's (CDC) director of population health within the CDC's National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion.  He is speaking with Sole Source about a growing problem of social isolation and loneliness within in the older adult population and how it poses serious risks to the public's health.


A recent study from the National Academy of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine shows that before COVID-19 social isolation was associated with 50% increased risk of dementia. And, it's likely even worse now. However, there are ways to combat loneliness and the symptoms that can result in the older population even with social distancing measures recommended by the CDC.


The Hope for Mental Health Community at Saddleback Church is a monthly upstream effort to address the need for social connection, meaningful interactions, and psychoeducation for people living with mental illness and their families.

A personalized tool that provides resources per situation/condition.
