A company in California by the name of Covia offers support to older adults primarily in the Bay Area. Covia (the name means "community" and "life") runs affordable housing units and offers connection to community resources for those in the Bay Area. Why am I telling you about a company in California? Because, they also offer a free program to all called "Well Connected", it is a wonderful program that offers virtual travel, book clubs and poetry readings that meet over the phone. If you have access to the internet they offer tours of the Art Institute of Chicago, a virtual camping adventure at Burning Man and a virtual trip from Austria to Germany.
Well Connected refreshes their programing three times a year with their spring/summer sessions starting May 1. Enrolling is easy, you can call 877-797-7299 to get started or go to their website, cocia.org and find Well Connected under the Community Service menu. The program is free and it is a great way to connect via the phone, the internet or both.
The conversations are live, you can interact and even see parts of the world from the comforts of your home. With the promotion of "Stay Home, Save Lives" this is a perfect time to call Covia and enroll in Well Connected today.
