The Social Emotional Model of C.A.R.E.
Launched in 2018, Heart2Heart Outreach’s new innovative program rapidly expands a robust volunteer network, supported by strong community partnerships and collaborative efforts, to provide a holistic impact (social/emotional, psycho/spiritual, cognitive/mental, physical) on aging adults in South Florida.
Heart2Heart Outreach of South Florida is extending and implementing a direct CARE Social Emotional program model, which not only understands deeper levels of loneliness and isolation in an empirical manner, but draws crucial attention to the issue by catalyzing action to end social isolation among older adults. The aim is to professionally develop civic engagement by mobilizing and training a volunteer network which impacts the quality care and quality of life for low income elders living in long-term aging adult institutions.
A strategic and scalable capacity building network is critical. With the right strategic Supporting Partners and growth in Implementing Partners, Heart2Heart will meet elder participant “at-risk” needs before crisis develops. Social isolation and loneliness decrease, as well as the deterioration of cognitive, physical and social emotional functions: the social determinants, which at present and empirically increase dependence on medical utilization and hinder physical, emotional and psychological well-being.
