With the rise of COVID-19, a second “silent” mental health pandemic is also having a dramatic impact, particularly on older adults. Given our founding purpose of “Making Today Great!”, V!VA Retirement Communities is not only focused on keeping our Community Members physically safe, but also protecting their psychological wellbeing. Likewise, we recognize that older adults are struggling regardless of where they live, and feel it is time to do something about it. That’s why we’ve launched V!VA Values Seniors’ Mental Health – a new initiative created to help us feel better together.

With this program, we are aiming to (1) increase awareness around mental health as an important issue for older adults, (2) provide seniors and loved ones with relevant education and resources, and (3) raise funds for local organizations supporting seniors’ mental health.

Below, you will find a list of upcoming webinars and recordings of previous sessions, along with information about in-person events and fundraising programs once they are safe to host. We look forward to having you join us as we help bring attention to this important cause.
