HELPING SENIORS COMBAT LONELINESS AMID PANDEMIC

Many Canadians have been forced to live with little human contact for weeks since the start of the pandemic. It’s a struggle for people who live alone to deal with an utter lack of face-to-face human interaction, particularly for seniors. Bev Foster, the founder and executive director of the Room 217 Foundation, joins Libby to talk about how we can help seniors dealing with loneliness during this difficult time. Room 217 is a music-based health arts organization and social enterprise. We provide an innovative approach to health and well-being called music care. Music care enhances quality of life and improves the care experience.
