Product Description


"This book shines the spotlight on how social isolation impacts the health and functioning of elders. More importantly, it identifies practical suggestions for providers to address this issue. It is a 'must read' for staff who work with elders in congregate senior living settings."--Joanne Handy, RN, MS, President and CEO"Aging Services of California" (04/06/2012)

"The book by Osage and McCall has uncovered all the critical issues impacing the isolation of seniors. The chapter on Emotional Health clearly points to the need for destigmatizing mental health so that seniors feel more comfortable in accessing resources that can enhance their well-being and longevity."--Solomon Belette, CEO"Catholic Charities of the East Bay" (03/31/2012)

"As a former administrator of a 110 unit, HUD subsidized apartment building for low income older adults in San Francisco, I have personally witnessed how easily residents can become increasingly isolated as their health becomes frailer. Through the efforts of our service coordinator, we were quite successful at helping our frailest residents 'age in place' but, looking back on it now, I realize we could have done more to help our residents 'age in community' and, by doing so, reduce their isolation. The steps, strategies, ideas and facts contained in this book will make it possible for any HUD subsidized senior apartment manager/service coordinator to reach out to their isolated residents in a variety of ways that are right for each individual and, by doing so, reduce their isolation, help foster community and improve the quality of life of not only their isolated residents but others as well."--Roy Earnest, MSW, LCSW, Pacifica, CA (04/12/2012)
