Date: March 22, 2012

Time: 03:00 PM - 04:00 PM

Type: Webinar

Seniors living in isolation are among the most vulnerable and economically insecure populations in America. In addition to their high levels of poverty, this population faces social, cultural, and/or geographical barriers that prevent them from receiving important services and supports from key government programs and the aging services network.

This webinar discusses the ways in which social and geographical isolation pose barriers to the access of key services and supports. By examining the main characteristics of the isolated population, this webinar also identifies opportunities to improve and expand the ways in which we identify, connect, and serve the needs of this population.

Speakers: Hector Ortiz, Research and Data Analyst, NCOA, and Walter Woods, Vice President, Impact Area - Isolation, AARP Foundation
