The need is urgent.“Helping elders age with dignity, particularly low-income elders, demands urgent attention. Now with COVID-19 it’s even more complex. It’s easy to underestimate the danger of isolation. Loneliness in elders eclipses obesity and even smoking in factors contributing to rapid decline. Vulnerable elders need our help. If we don’t act now, we will face a crisis that significantly impacts us all.”
-Robin Ingles, Seniors in Service CEO
COVID-19 is compounding the issues of senior isolation and loneliness. Social isolation and loneliness have been linked to many physical and mental health problems, including heart disease, diabetes, anxiety, and depression. Loneliness is estimated to increase the risk of early death by 26%, and has been compared to smoking 15 cigarettes a day. Senior isolation was a problem before COVID-19. Now, it’s a crisis. Isolated and homebound seniors need us, and we need your help to reach them. Thanks to Suncoast Credit Union, your donation made today will go twice as far.
“While we are focused on supporting our members ﬁnancially, we feel a moral obligation to support other basic needs during this very challenging time. We admire and are inspired by other charitable organizations who are providing relief through private donations like ours.”
-Kevin Johnson, Suncoast Credit Union President & CEO
