We recognize that many seniors in our community are living with trauma and other adverse childhood experiences from their growing up years and even into adulthood. They have survived but still live with the impact of those experiences. Add the isolation our seniors are living with currently due to COVID-19 may be stirring up the pain from those past experiences.
Our seniors living in independent apartments and condominium buildings, and those living in long term care facilities, need connection more than ever. While some are fluent in technology, others don’t use computers, don’t use Facetime, and can’t participate in “zoom” events to stay connected.
In an effort to stay connected with aging adults in Sarasota County as we continue to deal with COVID, Co-chairs from our Aging, Trauma, & Resilience Committee have organized monthly letters to reach local aging members of our community.
View these monthly letters below.
