Complimentary Webinar on Isolation Among Seniors ~ Hosted by Emerson Hospital ~ June 10 at 7 pm

It has long been recognized that social interactions are vital for one”s well-being. Our senior population has always been more susceptible to suffering the effects of isolation due to mobility and health issues. Since the Covid-19 pandemic hit, the isolation of seniors has become even more in focus. Many of the social activities of our seniors are no longer available due to the pandemic.

Tell Me More!

The Covid-19 pandemic has impacted nearly every aspect of life. In this unprecedented time of social distancing, feelings of loneliness have reached new heights. In particular, seniors are particularly vulnerable to the effects of isolation, including depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues. The Corporators and Auxiliary of Emerson Hospital invite the community to attend a free Zoom webinar about the health implications of loneliness and community resources for the aging population on Wednesday, June 10, at 7 p.m.

Studies have shown a correlation between loneliness and health outcomes.

Who’s Speaking?

Panelists Sunita Hanjura, MD, Emerson Primary Care Associates of Bedford; Robert Pacl, LICSW, Emerson Hospital; Katharine Esty, PhD, author on aging well; and Kelsey Magnuson, community benefits coordinator at Emerson Hospital, will discuss the health implications – both physical and mental – of loneliness and share important resources.
