What is the difference between being alone and loneliness?

How can we distinguish between forgetfulness and dementia?

What does it look like to take care of our mental health as we age?

Did you know social isolation is one of the most dangerous risk factors affecting older adults? As we age, maintaining social connections and prioritizing our mental wellness is often put on the backburner. Taking care of our mental health is even more important during these unprecedented times. Join Jewish Family Service of San Diego and the JFS Behavioral Health Committee for our Community Education Event, an inspiring discussion led by Dr. Dara Bliss Schwartz of Sharp Mesa Vista. Discover how we can age with resilience and combat loneliness during the pandemic.

Discussion Topics Include:

  • Common myths about aging
  • How loneliness and dementia affect the aging process
