Cyber Club Reading

Preparing for Medical Emergencies during Covid-19

Regular medical needs haven’t stopped just because Covid-19 has taken the front seat in the news. Whether your medical emergency arises from coronavirus or any other illness or accident, being prepared will help you get the best possible medical care.

L’dor v’dor—The Bonds Between Generations

There is a saying in Judaism— L’dor v’dor which literally means from generation to generation. Typically, it is understood to mean the transmission of the culture’s values, rituals, traditions, and history to the next generation.

Connecting and Coping While Sheltering in Place

We know emotional reactions to this emerging health crisis are expected, especially during a significant holiday season for many. Older adults who live alone or are not receiving visitors while sheltering in place are some of the most vulnerable in our community in need of connection. Please take a moment to contact family and friends and check in with them on how they are coping.
