Protecting Older Adults from the Harms of Social Isolation and Providing a Continuum of Care During COVID-19
April 15, 2020 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm PDT
Join Trust for America’s Health (TFAH) on Wednesday, April 15th for the webinar Protecting Against the Harms of Social Isolation During COVID-19.
The ongoing COVID-19 crisis presents unique challenges for the public health and aging sectors. While social distancing protects older adults who are at higher risk for complications from the virus, the practice can exacerbate social isolation, a longstanding issue for this population.
Attendees will learn about the consequences of social isolation, how the aging services sector has adapted its delivery models, promising practices from the field and the importance of working with public health partners to address the needs of older adults.
