Abstract:
The Silver Generation Study was initiated based upon the Community Outreach Parish Nurse's observation of the high incidence of depression in her senior clients. The Beck Depression Inventory, Beck Anxiety Inventory, DACL, and Zung Depression Scale instruments were administered to 250 male and female seniors living in the urban community and having access to the nurse. Analysis of the instruments concluded that the most significant factor was social isolation. In addition, there was a high correlation between social isolation and decreased physical health and demise. These findings were utilized to design an innovative program, seek grant funding and community partnerships and implement programming to decrease senior social isolation. The Starquest Program has more than 300 senior members. On-going data collection is suggestive of the decreased physical symtomology of chronic diseases in Starquest Program participants.
