RICHMOND, Va. - Socially distancing doesn’t mean socially disconnecting! The AARP Foundation is concerned about the physical and mental health of those in isolation. A quarter of older adults already suffer from social isolation, even before social distancing became a requirement.

Today, Lisa Marsh Ryerson, President of the AARP Foundation, joined us by satellite from Washington, D.C. to talk about the critical importance of connection for seniors even in the age of social distancing.
