Social Isolation Resource Guide

As you are well aware, the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in many lifestyle changes for the people in our community. The stay-at home orders and distancing guidelines have made it even more difficult for some of our populations in need of additional support and connection. Many of our older adults and family caregivers have been isolated from loved ones and from services and necessary health care. These changes can result in other mental and physical health issues. In an effort to mitigate the impacts of social isolation and loneliness caused by COVID-19 and beyond, Extension worked with our ADRC to compile a list of local and statewide services into a resource guide to make it easier to find the resources that people need. I’ve attached the resource guide for you to refer to if you are working with a community member that may need assistance. Please feel free to share this with others in your community who might find it useful.
