Senior advocates and Florida Department of Elder Affairs Secretary Richard Prudom will hold a press conference at 9:15 am on Monday, July 27, 2020 at Elder Care Services, Inc. to highlight the need to keep homebound seniors engaged and healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Secretary Prudom, along with leaders from the Area Agency on Aging and Elder Care Services, will discuss the importance of seniors receiving mental health and nutritional services during these challenging times.
As the number of cases of COVID-19 increase, so does the associated anxiety, and older adults are more likely to be at risk to develop serious illness. The mental health effects of COVID-19 are as essential to address as the physical health effects.
Media/Photo Opp: Elder Care Services volunteers will be driving into the facility to pick up and deliver meals to seniors, along with special goody bags to keep seniors engaged.
