When the pandemic hit in 2020, senior service agencies were faced with an immediate social isolation problem. Even though shelter-in-place measures, lockdowns, and visitor restrictions for seniors intend to uplift their safety, the byproduct of these restrictions is an extreme level of social isolation that can be life threatening.
