AFC Webinar – Older Adults, Physical Distancing & Social Isolation During the COVID-19 Pandemic – What can Communities do NOW?

Dr. John Puxty discusses the inherent barriers that will emerge for older adults trying to access daily essentials, spend quality time with their families and friends, and navigate assistance and services. He also explores the unintended health consequences that may emerge when vulnerable populations are isolated for an extended period. Sarah Webster shares some of the creative ways communities are ensuring that older adults stay informed, and are able to access the services they need, and stay socially active while adhering to physical distancing guidelines.
