Dignity in Aging

What We Are Looking for

Based on the findings in "The Silver Tsunami: Is Broward Ready?" report, this RFP focuses on reducing social isolation that will entice providers and other community partners to develop a collaborative approach to address this key concern. We are seeking the expertise of the provider community and engaging other community partners to help initiate and implement (a) pilot program(s) that will move the community to create a solution for this challenge.

Projects must meet one or more of the following outcomes:
Increased/improved coordinated care, services, and social connections of isolated seniors that foster independence, improved well-being, vitality, functioning, and quality of life
Remove transportation barriers for seniors to engage socially
Decreased depression with remarkable improvement in mental health
Of special note is that while United Way and Jewish Federation will support projects that serve seniors from 65 and up, the Community Foundation of Broward will grant only to projects that serve seniors age 80+ as this population experiences more acute issues of isolation due to immobility and health issues.
