For those who are concerned about aging parents, COVID-19 has brought an entirely new level of anxiety. How can loved ones stay safe from a virus that is more dangerous for seniors? How do you prevent social distancing from turning into isolation, which can be harmful for an older person’s physical and mental health? Being a caregiver for an aging loved one was stressful enough before the pandemic, and now many adult children are taking on shopping, errands, and other tasks for their parents while also working from home and managing remote schooling for young children.

In the latest episode of Hebrew SeniorLife’s podcast “There for Them,” Julie Schroeder and Martha Samuelson speak about their experiences having a parent in an independent living community during COVID-19. They shed light on the advantages senior living communities can offer during these unprecedented times.
