This resource presents a model for social connectedness that focuses on how older adults can change their thinking, feeling, and connections to reduce their distress during periods of isolation.

Service providers and older adults can work together (even over the phone), by building a flexible “Connections Plan” to develop coping strategies for preventing or managing social isolation during periods of isolation.

Printable handouts and a worksheet are included to support implementation.
