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 – an initiative created to help us feel better together.
With this program, we are aiming to increase awareness around mental health as an important issue for older adults, and provide seniors and loved ones with relevant education and resources.
Below, you will find a list of upcoming webinars and recordings of previous sessions, along with information about in-person events. We look forward to having you join us as we help bring attention to this important cause.
We’re planning some great stuff – check back again soon!
