Description: Studies have found that older adults who participate in what they see as meaningful activities, like volunteering in their community, reported feeling healthier and happier. Other studies have found that older adults who have a full social network and participate in many social activities tend to have less cognitive decline and a decreased risk of dementia than those who are not socially engaged do. The Administration on Aging is interested in increasing ACL and the Aging Network’s understanding of what constitutes good practice for promoting and supporting social engagement among older adult and expanding the reach of the Aging Network to more effectively serve older adults by providing tools and resources necessary for aging organizations to assist older adults to remain socially engaged and active.
