We created Sidekick to promote interactions between seniors,caregivers, and family.
Social isolation for seniors is like smoking 15 cigarettes per day and it increases their chance of suffering from dementia by 64%.
Prior to the COVID-19 epidemic, even with group wellness programming, the level of social isolation in senior living communities was as high as 54%. With the current lockdowns, the number of seniors suffering from social isolation is increasing exponentially. This impacts the health of our senior population resulting in an increased need from the province’s and country's strained healthcare system.
