(As of June 2020)
Neighborhood SHOPP’s staff of 100 pivoted from in-person programming to supporting older adults and caregivers through virtual communication.
In a two-week span, they went from an organization delivering hundreds of on-site and off-site services and activities to working remotely while maintaining contact with thousands of seniors they would normally engage with face-to-face on a daily basis.
They determined quickly the need to engage seniors in virtual activities, wellness, education and other forms of support that promotes social connectedness, awareness, social support and cognitive stimulation as many were beginning to express loneliness, sadness, depression and a sense of emptiness due to their inability to attend programming, visit family/friends and engage in normal daily activities.
