As our nation’s population of older adults — ages 60 and up— continues to grow, so do the issues of senior hunger and isolation.
Nationally, 5.5 million seniors are food insecure and don’t know where their next meal is coming from. In addition, many seniors face health issues that decrease mobility, leaving them homebound. Social isolation is the result, with 1 in 5 older adults reporting feeling lonely. Social isolation has an overwhelming negative impact on the emotional and physical health and wellness of older adults, as its associated with an extra $6.7 billion in Medicare spending each year.
