Introduction

In Canada, almost 1 in 2 people aged 55 and above feel lonely from physical and social distancing. Seniors in particular are experiencing social isolation as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Loneliness is a huge health risk for seniors. It can increase the risk of dementia, cognitive decline, and depression. Research shows that loneliness is also linked to higher mortality rates for the elderly.

On Thursday, November 18, Yee Hong Foundation and Sing Tao A1 Chinese Radio are once again partnering up for the annual Radiothon event. This year, we are leading the theme “Break The Loneliness”, to raise awareness for essential geriatric care, and fundraise for Yee Hong’s programs and services.

AM1540 will broadcast live from 7am to 6pm. Throughout the 11 hours, stories will be shared by residents, families, and community members about how their lives have been touched by the exceptional care provided by Yee Hong through a full spectrum of services.

Show your support by tuning in and donating. Together, we can take care of the seniors and “break the loneliness”!

If you have any touching stories to share on air, send them in to foundation@yeehong.com or call us at 416-321-0777 by October 30.
