What are the risks of social isolation and loneliness, especially with COVID-19? What are clinical considerations in responding to lack of social engagement?
Nurses, social workers, case managers, and wellness coaches are encouraged to attend.
- Differentiate loneliness, social isolation, and solitude.
- Understand mechanisms older adults utilize to adapt to change and stress in their lives.
