Community programs that serve millions of older adults across the country have been forced to cancel in-person physical activity and wellness programming due to the coronavirus. As a result, older adults are spending more time at home, are less active, and more socially isolated. Building on their existing networks, programs across the country have adapted their outreach to help older adults remain active and healthy at home. This webinar will include a panel of representatives from national community-based organizations who will share various ways they have adapted to support older adults at home.
