mentalwellness olderadultscovid coverNo one is immune to the psychological toll of COVID-19-related restrictions. For older adults, however, the heightened fear of contracting the virus, a sudden decrease in connectivity, or the loss of outside support can make their situation more difficult.

To help self-isolating seniors who are at home during the pandemic, the Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC) asked Dr. Keri-Leigh Cassidy, professor of psychiatry at Dalhousie University and founder of the Fountain of Health optimal aging initiative, to share some practical advice on how to deal with the challenges of COVID-19.
