Description

We know the consequences of isolation, but what are the solutions?

Age-Friendly San Jose and the Santa Clara County Seniors’ Agenda, in partnership with the Institute on Aging, AARP, The Santa Clara County Public Health Department and the Office of Assembly Member Ash Kalra, are hosting a Roundtable on Social Inclusion of Older Adults in order to change these outcomes for isolated older adults.
