Prior to the pandemic the elderly may have experienced problems that could have hurt their mental health from their long term stay in a nursing home. Most nursing homes went into lock down when the pandemic hit.
The effect of the added isolation and loneliness may have exacerbated many residents’ feelings in regards to not being able to visit with their family or or being able to socialize with the public.
However, after a long break the Liberty Village is excited to again start hosting monthly events open to the public.
“On Thursday, Sept. 30 at 10 a.m. there will be a Senior Brunch’n Learn,” Brady Dabbs said. “The Speaker will be Stephine Cloning-Hultz. Hultz is a family nurse practitioner from JCH Medical Group.”
Dabbs mentioned that at the luncheon, Cloning-Hultz ,will be sharing tips on dealing with social isolation for those seniors who are feeling down, lonely, or missing their loved ones.
“Please RSVP to Brady Dabbs by Sept. 27 at 1-618-946-7336. This event will be held in the new Hathorne Inn dining room on 1225 North State Street in Jerseyville,” Dabbs said.
