Because it's not safe to gather in a large group the way we've done in the past, we are taking our annual Senior Symposium virtual this year!
Presentations are available for you to view by clicking on the links below:
Social Isolation: Handling Anxiety and Depression in Uncertain Times. Having to stay home to stay safe means we don’t have our usual outlets to help meet our social and emotional needs, so we need to find new ways to keep our mood on an even keel. CLICK HERE TO WATCH
Fair Housing in the Time of COVID. Seniors may face special challenges during the pandemic; learn from experts on how to handle housing issues. CLICK HERE TO WATCH
What Grief Looks Like Now. Handling grief is different because of restrictions that are intended to keep us healthy. Learn how to cope when our traditional ways of dealing with grief aren’t safe. CLICK HERE TO WATCH
Imposter Scams: Not Everyone is a Friend. Feelings of loneliness and isolation make it easier for scammers to take advantage of us, most often through pretending to be someone they are not. Learn how to spot them and not let them con you. CLICK HERE TO WATCH
The SafeSeniors collaborative is made up of community partners, all working together to help keep older adults safe from abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation. Learn more about our partners by clicking here.
