The current pandemic presents us all with a unique challenge. Society at large is facing a crisis that we did
not prepare for and is fraught with many challenges both personal and public. The policy of physical
distancing is causing feelings of abject loneliness amongst many elderly citizens exacerbated by the
cancelling of all their social clubs and leisure activities. As volunteers you have an opportunity to express
caring, concern and to convey the important message that they "are not alone." In addition, your meeting
is an occasion to show respect and appreciation for the elderly, curiosity and interest in their personal
history and experiences as well as to share your own experiences, outlook and pursuits.
