Learn more about how you can continue the fight against social isolation among older adults.

Older adults who are mostly confined to their homes often struggle with feelings of isolation and loneliness. This educational video, developed by researchers at Brown University School of Public Health in partnership with the Building Resilient Inclusive Communities program in Mississippi, aims to equip home-delivered meals drivers, community health workers, transportation vendors, and others who may regularly interact with homebound older adults with the tools they need to improve the lives of the people they serve.
