Senior Entertainment Network Gains Momentum
During this pandemic one of the hardest hit groups have been seniors living alone at home or in senior care homes. Loneliness and mental health issues are arising in addition to the medical issues. Isolation has reduced socialization and reduced or eliminated activities.
