ALEXANDRIA, Va., Aug. 11, 2023 /BPALiveWire/ Meals on Wheels America, the leading organization supporting over 5,000 local programs addressing senior hunger and isolation, has introduced the #RespectYourElders campaign. The initiative responds to the concerning statistics: 24% of seniors are grappling with social isolation, while 43% experience chronic loneliness. The campaign aims to spotlight the often overlooked challenges faced by seniors and has garnered the support of prominent figures who share heartwarming videos about the meaningful elders in their lives.


Noteworthy advocates such as Sebastian Maniscalco and Roy Wood Jr. have already lent their voices to the cause. The campaign goes beyond surface gestures, urging everyone to deepen their engagement with seniors. It encourages spending quality time and fostering genuine connections.


Practical steps to help seniors include supporting Meals on Wheels through volunteering or donations, engaging in regular visits to combat loneliness, offering to help a senior with yard work, running errands and tech support. These steps go beyond symbolic gestures, making a tangible difference in the lives of isolated seniors.
