About the Foundation for Senior Wellbeing

The Foundation for Senior Wellbeing is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to improve the wellbeing of a growing population of seniors throughout North San Diego County by linking them, their families, and their caregivers to resources and programs to achieve: a sense of purpose, supportive relationships, financial security, community pride and good physical health.
The Foundation’s Information Resource Center, which opened in 2016, is just one example of the effort to help the region’s seniors and their families. It supports seniors by helping solve challenges in the areas of housing, transportation, legal assistance, food/nutrition needs, health issues and more. The Foundation has been a source of funding for seniors-in-crisis programs and founded the Senior Disaster Resource Alliance, which offers programs to prepare and equip seniors for emergencies and disasters. Looking forward, The Foundation recently launched a Senior Spotlight Series to connect and educate older adults about resources and services in North County.

Our Story & Why Your Support Is So Valuable

Simply put, we hear from hundreds of seniors each year that find themselves in financial straits, personal isolation, and battling despair.  And the need to support our seniors is growing.  By 2023, one in five Americans will be over age 65 and 55% of those are expected to be suffering from some form of dementia.  A recent Union-Tribune article reported that CURRENTLY 4 out of 10 seniors in San Diego County are struggling.  Imagine what will happen as our senior population grows.  
Leading up to the opening of the Information Resource Center, we conducted a needs survey and here is what seniors are saying: “I don’t have proper resources and it’s hard to search out information and activities”…“Nothing can be done because issues are due to the cost of living”…“Tight budgets with limited choices for basic life necessities”…“As we live longer chronic illness adds to the challenges”…“We can’t ask friends to drive us all the time.”
The Foundation for Senior Wellbeing has been helping address these needs by providing guidance, resources and sometimes financial support in emergencies.  We invite you to get involved and join us.
