Reducing Social Isolation in Seniors Competition

Older adults, especially from multicultural backgrounds, are at risk of social isolation because of loss of family or friends, chronic illness, language barriers and hearing difficulties. AMCS ran a competition to seek ideas about reducing social isolation. We received 63 entries, including thoughts on pet therapy, gardening tasks and online social connections.

Brian Edwards won first place of $500 for his idea of a “biography pack distributed to older adults at risk of social isolation to tell their story.”

We awarded Chandani Ramasun the $200 second prize for the intergenerational playgroup idea, where families and children create meaningful connections with seniors through various activities.

Aged Care News and Talking Aged Care by Aged Care Guide featured our initiative and we are implementing our winning entries.
