LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Seniors are one of the most vulnerable groups during the pandemic.

They're not just trying to stay healthy, they're also dealing with loneliness and isolation.

Nevada Senior Services stepped in to help them stay connected.

They quickly turned services virtual.

Special Projects Manager at Nevada Senior Services Ellen Grossman developed a new program titled Chasing Away The Corona Blues.

Grossman also says some seniors have experienced cognitive decline because they don't have the same stimulus they did before the pandemic.
