Seniorly’s Third Senior Sentiment Report Shows Improving Mental Health, as Vaccination and Political Transition Unfold Across the Country

Share Article

The easing of political tensions and disagreements surrounding the election have contributed to a rising Mental Health Index. In addition, a great vaccination push has relieved some of their worries from the COVID19 pandemic. 80% of Seniors over 85 have gotten the vaccine, and 55% of Seniors overall have as well.

Today, Seniorly, the fastest growing online marketplace to find senior living and care services, announced the results of its third Senior Sentiment Report.

This new monthly report surveys half a thousand older adults who are active Seniorly users, asking about their feelings toward housing, caregiving, physical health, mental health, and financial health. This report reveals growing anxiety tied to political instability and social isolation.

Results from the February 2020 report revealed three significant findings:
Vaccination Improves Mental Health
Biden Transition divides seniors
Winter Storm impacts Connectedness

The easing of political tensions and disagreements surrounding the election have contributed to a rising Mental Health Index. In addition, a great vaccination push has relieved some of their worries from the COVID19 pandemic. 80% of Seniors over 85 have gotten the vaccine, and 55% of Seniors overall have as well.

In parallel, however, Seniors are being forced to confront the growing affordability crisis, which shows no signs of abating. The large winter storm that blanketed the USA also disrupted Seniors ability to remain connected to their friends and family.

The survey data reveals many insights into how living conditions and support from family and friends correlate to current happiness or feelings of discontent. This month’s report includes responses from hundreds of older adults who are actively searching for senior living options with nearly 65% of respondents over 70 years old. The full report, along with our top data takeaways, is available here: https://www.seniorly.com/press-releases/articles/senior-sentiment-report-february-2021
