Go Beyond Better: Create Social Connectedness in Your Community
As the Green House team begins a new year, one that is filled with hope and possiblities, we are launching a new webinar series that addresses something that isunfortunately very commong among elders living in long-term care communities today: social isolation.
In partnership with IN2L, the six-part series, titled Building Social Connectedness in a Disconnected World, will begin on Jan. 12 with the examination of the tragic social isolation that COVID-19 has caused among elders.
Join us for the first two webinars for a comprehensive review of research, policy recommendations, and the impact of design on social connectedness among elders.
