WEBINAR: Treating COVID-19 Anxiety in Older Adults

Several reports have shown that older adults are the most vulnerable population when it comes to the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the fact that their immune systems are weaker, older adults and people with chronic medical conditions such as heart disease, lung disease, diabetes, cancer, and hypertension, are the most compromised in the general population.

Constantly seeing these reports on the news can lead to an increased amount of stress and anxiety throughout this population. While some levels of anxiety are normal, it is important to reach out for additional support when needed.

To learn more about what to watch out for and how to help your loved ones, watch this webinar hosted by Therapist, Kim Denton from Valley Oaks.
