Staying Connected During COVID-19
CFL is committed to staying connected with you and, together, we will navigate these unprecedented times. Here is this week’s featured information to let you know some of the steps we are taking to help prevent and protect our seniors and other high-risk individuals from getting the COVID-19 virus.
For many, the COVID-19 crisis has upended lives and social connections. Physical and social distancing have left many people, including older adults, feeling isolated. Normal routines were disrupted as many senior centers, places of worship and local businesses were closed. While physical distancing is important to maintaining health during the crisis, as the time at home has lengthened, loneliness has set in. Research shows that prolonged social isolation can lead to an increased risk of heart disease, depression, anxiety and other negative health outcomes. Given these impacts, engAGED: The National Resource Center for Engaging Older Adults developed this flyer (link to PDF) to recommend ways to stay connected, in mind and body, while the pandemic passes.
