Far From Alone campaign & web site to help with increasing isolation and loneliness

Techstination feature for Monday, December 28, 2020

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.        Far From Alone is the name of a new campaign and Web site designed to reach out to the many people who have become more isolated and lonely during the pandemic.   At Humana…Associate VP Dr. Andrew Renda says the numbers are staggering.   Meals on Wheels is another partner in the effort…and CEO  Ellie Hollander says the demand for their services for seniors has skyrocketed…despite the challenges Covid has presented..

“We’ve basically turned senior centers into drive through grab and go meal sites and shifted our home delivery model so that we are not entering the home but going up to the home but verbally and visually confirming that the person on the other side of that door, our dear senior, is doing okay.”
