#StayAtHome activity: Record a message for an isolated senior!

Being quarantined can be hugely isolating, which has demonstrable negative health impacts. Seniors are especially at risk for this, as well as being in a high-risk group for the COVID-19 virus itself.

As a means of keeping older Canadians engaged and connected during the COVID-19 crisis, a team of Canadian high schoolers created a hotline that plays pre-recorded messages of positivity. The Joy4All project offers regularly updated selection of jokes, stories, guided meditations, and educational messages for quarantined seniors across North America.
