Jacksonville, FL. — As the holidays quickly approach many individuals have had to change their plans due to COVID-19.
Specifically older adults are having to choose to stay home because it is safer for them.
With doing so, this isolation has caused a sense of loneliness during this holiday season.
Local agencies have decided to help seniors to prevent that feeling with the Together Apart: Holidays at Heart campaign.
This campaign offers virtual caregiver support group, which makes it possible for caregivers to connect face-to-face in real time with other caregivers.
As well as telephone calls from trained volunteers to older adults who are living alone and/or are homebound.
