LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — For some, 2020 will be remembered as a lonely year. But a new program aims to change that.
Virginia Commonwealth University's American Geriatrics Society is pairing students with senior citizens.
The goal is to combat isolation due to COVID-19 by creating some social interaction. The program is completely student-run.
The group says this is also helping seniors who sometimes experience memory loss due to isolation.
