Seniors are considered at-risk to the COVID-19 pandemic in more ways than the threat of severe illness. Self-isolating seniors are also battling loneliness, isolation and boredom, which can be harmful to their health.
The Hummingbird Project by Burlingame-based Sage Elder Care Solutions has launched a virtual therapy program that provides face-to-face interaction for seniors, not just locally but nationwide. The Virtual Therapeutic Activity Sessions provide face-to-face interaction with an activity specialist and engagement in activities tailored to seniors.
“We’ve shed our geographical ties and are now reaching older adults around the country,” said Kari Rogenski, director of The Hummingbird Project. “In doing so, we are uplifting the spirits of our older adult clients and the adult children who are worried about the effects of their isolation.”
