Connected aims to help seniors and young residents build meaningful lives. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we are spearheading four remote programsl!
EDUCATION & ACTIVITY PROGRAM
We are supporting seniors through community health classes and educational programs in the arts and sciences. We hope to launch collaborations with local universities.
Our pen-pal program matches young residents with local seniors. Through e-mail or postal service, buddy pairs write to each other weekly about coping during the pandemic, fun activities to pass time, and life experiences.
Stay in touch and provide compansionship to your senior buddy through phone and video calls. Our platform schedules regular calls according to your availability.
We are partnering with community-based organizations (CBOs) and healthcare providers to develop videos with information to improve health and wellness during the pandemic. Additionally, we are training our young residents to help their senior buddies access their Medicare/Medicaid health plans.
