Social engagement while aging

  • Video calls make it possible for homebound citizens to attend meetings, legislative hearings, conferences, social clubs, and family dinners, allowing involvement in activities that in pre-pandemic times required in-person attendance.
  • Online services for medical visits, counseling sessions, veterinary services, exercise classes, classes, and support groups grew during the pandemic. When face-to-face contact is not required, online services make efficient use of time for providers and clients.
  • Online shopping with home delivery or curbside pickup can make life easier for people with mobility challenges
  • With imagination we can create new ways to foster social connections and provide services more equitably on digital platforms.
