As we are faced with the unprecedented challenges of COVID-19 here in the U.S., seniors continue to be particularly vulnerable and increasingly isolated with mounting complex needs. About a quarter of older Americans ages 65 and older living independently are considered socially isolated, and 43 percent of those over 60 report feeling lonely — and that was before officials mandated that everyone stay home.
