The Loneliness Epidemic was raging long before COVID-19, but the events of the past year have only highlighted the struggle that nearly 1 in 5 Americans over 65 face daily. The effects of a pandemic on top of existing isolation have disproportionately impacted older adults, and a variety of modern approaches will be required to address their needs.

Homesharing is not a new concept. People have long kept lodgers, tenants and roommates. What’s new for most people is the use of digital tools to make homesharing modern, scalable and practical for how we live today. Making those tools user-friendly and reassuring for older adults is more vitally important than ever. Our mission is to enable and operationalize homesharing as a part of population health initiatives designed to help combat loneliness and isolation among older adults.

In our latest report, we examined the intersection of healthcare and isolation, positioning homesharing as a holistic intervention for individual health. You can read and download the full report for free by clicking the link below.
