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.

The Joy4All project offers regularly updated selection of jokes, stories, guided meditations, and educational messages for quarantined seniors across North America.
