Abstract (Summary)

It is estimated that approximately 8 million older adults live in isolation in the United States. With the population of older adults growing at a faster rate than all other segments of the population, the number of older adults experiencing loneliness is also growing. Therefore, programing that targets loneliness in older adulthood is needed to address this increasing problem. The purpose of this thesis project was to identify possible funding and write a grant proposal to develop the Visiting Angels program. The goal of the Visiting Angels program is to reduce the experience of loneliness in community-dwelling older adults. The host agency for the program is the Rose M. Eldridge Senior Center in Norco, California. A grant proposal narrative was written for the Archstone Foundation, a private grantmaking organization that awards grants for projects that serve older adults. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not a requirement for the completion of this project.
