TheKey’s Dr. Shadi Gholizadeh Presents on Senior Loneliness at the 40th Annual Aging Life Care Association Conference

SAN DIEGO, CA – April 23, 2024 TheKey, North America’s leading provider of in-home care for seniors, attended the 40th Annual Aging Life Care Association Conference, held in Minneapolis, MN. In an effort to support the organization and help educate Aging Life Care professionals across the United States, the company’s in-house expert, Dr. Shadi Gholizadeh gave a conference-wide presentation called “The Silent Epidemic: Identifying and Addressing Loneliness in Our Aging Clients”.

Dr. Shadi Gholizadeh, Head of Quality and Clinical Development at TheKey, delivered the compelling presentation, highlighting the significant toll loneliness can take on the health and happiness of aging adults, on Friday, April 19, 2024. Dr. Gholizadeh’s insightful discourse emphasized the indispensable role of Aging Life Care Professionals in addressing this issue and supporting seniors and their families to prevent and solve the growing incidence of social isolation in older adults.

“Social isolation is an often overlooked contributor to declines in mental and physical health for aging adults,” said Dr. Gholizadeh. “As Aging Life Care and home care professionals, it is essential that we seek out opportunities to identify loneliness in the individuals we serve and step in to identify ways to increase opportunities for connection, companionship, and support.”

The partnership between TheKey and Aging Life Care Professionals across the country exemplifies the organizations’ collective commitment to enhancing the lives of older adults through innovative, person-centered care practices.

“TheKey takes pride in supporting Aging Life Care Professionals to give families the tools and support they need to provide the best possible aging experience for their senior loved ones,” said TheKey’s Kelley Richard, Director, Geriatric Care Management. “We are grateful for our partnerships with Geriatric Care Management practices across the country and commend their outstanding efforts.”
