Humana launches initiative to help keep senior citizens connected, socially active
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - With many older Americans facing some form of loneliness, one group is working to keep local seniors socially active.
Humana is creating a series of free events at the Louisville Neighborhood Center offering ways for seniors to stay connected.
People who are socially disconnected have a higher risk for anxiety and depression, which can lead to heart disease, dementia and stroke, according to U.S. Surgeon General Vivek H. Murthy.
The events include educational programming and a free luncheon to help improve mental health through social activities.
A full list of events in June, happening at the Humana Neighborhood Center at 1918 Hikes Lane, can be found below:
