Are social distancing and social isolation the same?   Is loneliness inevitable when social distancing occurs? These are important questions to address due to the impact of the pandemic, self-quarantine and stay at home orders.  Isolation for older adults and their family caregivers involves more than just loneliness—the literature suggests it’s downright dangerous for their health.  Isolation doesn’t just negatively impact physical and mental health but also increases the risk that an older patient will be financially exploited or suffer other abuse.  This interactive session will show you how to identify isolation;  re-engage older adults and caregivers experiencing it;  and prevent the preexisting senior isolation crisis from becoming even worse due to the pandemic.

This program has beginning and intermediate content. The material has beginning content discussing the differences between isolation and loneliness and progresses to intermediate level on how to use that as a foundation to enhance practice and skill set.
