Technology and activities can help aging-in-place families stay happy, well and in touch.
January 27th, 2021
2:00 p.m. Eastern

In the time of COVID-19, social isolation is more present than ever, and people—especially seniors who live alone—are suffering because of it. Studies show that without regular, meaningful contact, people can become depressed, lose motor and mental functions and worse. Thankfully, there are programs and technologies that can help keep loneliness at bay, provide meaningful interactions, and help keep families and friends connected with loved ones. Opportunities for stimulation and activity will be discussed.

This webinar will:

  • Discuss the health risks of social isolation.
  • Show who is most at risk (including seniors and anyone with hearing loss) and why.
  • Illustrate the impact of the pandemic on social isolation, including the decision by many families to keep a loved one at home for as long as possible.
  • Review proven therapies and new technology for those at risk.
