We recognize the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated loneliness and isolation among older adults. Studies show that social isolation and loneliness can not only have an effect on their mental health through challenges of depression, stress and anxiety but also on their overall health and well-being.
With this grant we can socially engage with our clients by providing virtual activities through Zoom and YouTube for those who otherwise may not have the ability to do so.
Each applicant will be required to have Wi-Fi internet service access. Qualified applicants will be selected in a drawing on Monday, February 1, 2021. For more information, call (740) 345-0821, ext. 237.
