How to stay connected to your loved ones this holiday season

As COVID-19 continues to spread across the country, it has never been more important to practice social distancing. Although the virus can cause severe illness to people in any age group, our elderly community is most at risk, making social distancing for them even more necessary. Social isolation could put seniors at risk for anxiety, depression, and other potentially serious mental conditions. That’s why it’s essential to stay connected with your elderly loved ones as you keep them safe by social distancing. The good news is that there are so many ways to keep in contact and connected even if you can’t visit one another in person. If you are looking for ways to stay in touch with an older loved one, here are a few ideas to keep in mind:

  • Schedule a video chat
  • Correspond by letter, card, or email
  • Create a book club
  • Take an online course together
  • Check-in daily
