The COVID-19 pandemic has affected nations worldwide and people have gone into lockdown to avoid the long-lasting effects of the virus. One group that is often overlooked is the elderly population over sixty years old. The seniors in our community have been hit extremely hard by this virus, as they are one of the most susceptible groups. Here at Caring About Seniors, we have decided to take the initiative to set up different support systems for the seniors in our community during these stressful times. We target social and financial support to our seniors, and aim to lend a helping hand to our community.
