Regular connection with aging friends and family more important than ever before The Coronavirus crisis has shown just how vulnerable our aging population is, physically,
psychologically and emotionally. The current social isolation will likely make a bad situation worse. We have more communication tools than ever before in history to provide for remote contact. But many isolated elderly individuals may not have ability or the knowledge and skills to access and use the technology for contact.

Additionally, communication technology is no substitute for the human touch. With many health care facilities barring visits, even from close family, there is great concern about the impact the sheltering in place requirements will have on the well-being of many individuals.

Do whatever you can to stay in touch with elderly friends and family in these difficult times. If they can manage the technology, by all means use email and video conferencing in these difficult times. At the very least however send them kind written notes and make regular sympathetic phone calls.
