LEAP Study Proves Evidence-Based Programs Impact Social Isolation and Loneliness

Last Updated February 22, 2021

We are proud to be associated with this powerful piece of research. The Leveraging Exercise to Age in Place (LEAP) program at Cedars-Sinai Geriatrics, was funded by AARP in partnership with Jewish Family Services and Partners in Care. Published findings can be accessed using the link below.

Thanks to AARP’s continued support, LEAP successfully transitioned to a virtual program, enrolling > 150 participants in the EBPs for fall prevention and combating social isolation.

Dr. Allison Mays’ paper published in JAGP describes the LEAP program and findings, demonstrating reduced social isolation and loneliness with the use of exercise EBPs.

LEAP is now a sustainable program for Cedars-Sinai through community benefits, and a replicable model of care using a health coach to combine existing community resources with a health system. https://www.ajgponline.org/article/S1064-7481(20)30514-5/fulltext
