As seniors shelter in place, social isolation is a growing concern for our clients.
Social isolation among seniors is associated with:
- Poor heart health.
- Worsened control of diabetes.
- Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
- Higher health care costs.
To help fight loneliness and social isolation, Meals on Wheels Collin County is asking the community for assistance with a new project.
We are requesting greeting cards for our seniors. They can be store bought or homemade. This is a great task for children as well.
Cards can be mailed to our office or dropped off any weekday between 9am and noon. No personal contact necessary.
Cards will be delivered to seniors with their meals.
