Resources for Seniors Sheltering in Place

One of the most effective ways to combat the Coronavirus pandemic and its effect on seniors is by practicing self-quarantine. By reducing the spread of the virus, healthcare systems are better able to treat those that are affected while they work on a long-term solution. 

It is important for everyone to do their part by staying at home, but especially critical that seniors reduce their exposure.

We have created a list of resources that we hope makes self-isolating a little easier for older adults. From food delivery to entertainment to resources for low-income seniors, we hope this list can bring some relief, connection and hope to seniors and their families.
