Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this proposed project is to provide funding for outreach and linkage to older adult community-based agencies for implementation of the Orange County Senior Center Without Walls Program. A thorough and extensive review of literature identified a population increase of older adults, age 65 and older, in the next two decades and a concern for older adults who are homebound and socially isolated. The California Wellness Foundation was identified as a potential funding source and a grant proposal was written. The program Senior Center Without Walls, which is a phone based community for homebound seniors in California, will include older adult volunteers and professionals who are motivated to increase the general well-being of homebound older adults. This project requested $155,320 in funding for one year to enable the host agency, Working to Enhance Care and Resources for Elders (WECARE), the ability to implement this older adult community-based program in Orange County, California.
