COVID-19: Coping With fear and social isolation

june 24, 2020 | webinar

After over three months in quarantine, older adults are increasingly becoming more and more fearful about their future due to Covid-19. Even before this pandemic, Latino seniors have suffered most from isolation and depression due to a huge language barrier limiting access to the tools that are part of everyday life for the rest of the elderly community such as the internet and television. Many seniors are afraid of resuming their previous routines and what their post-coronavirus life will be like. Worst of all, many fear death, and are afraid of leaving their homes.

These are some of the main reasons, the Latino Center on Aging (LCA) in collaboration with other community organizations is producing a new Webinar series in Spanish attempting to address the following:

a) Social engagement: Strategies to adapt to the “new” normal.

b) How to prevent or limit exposure to COVID19. Real facts to educate the seniors.

c) Accessing resources that will enhance daily living, e.g. transportation, food, mental health, social engagement.

LCA has assembled a distinguished panel of experts to address these issues, including Dr. Nieves Fernández from Quirónsalud Hospital, Zaragoza, Spain; Dr. Maritza Montano a psychologist – author of Meant to Last for Ever; and Dr. Belisa Guzmán from Chen Med Center.

Please save the date and register for this webinar by sending an email to info@gerolatino.org or by filling the form at https://lcaflorida.org/contact-us/  As we get closer to June 24th we will send the Webinar participation details via email.
