This has certainly been a scary year when it comes to senior citizens' health. In this age of Coronavirus, a lot of people have been focused on seniors’ physical wellness, but the truth is that this age group’s mental health is at risk as well*. Many older adults have been separated from family and friends for months, and because the pandemic shows no signs of slowing down, they aren’t sure when they’ll be able to reunite with their loved ones.
I think it’s more important than ever to show senior citizens our support, especially when it comes to giving them the resources they need to take care of their own mental health or that of a loved one. In that spirit, below is a list of information I’ve put together that I hope will offer some hope to your site’s readers.
