The Pennsylvania Council on Aging (PCoA) recently released an interactive guide with information and resources to help older adults maintain a healthy mind, body, and spirit during the Covid-19 pandemic. SOLO: Strengthening Older Lives Online was produced by the PCoA’s Risk Reduction Committee which formed in response to the council’s “State of Older Adults Report” in May.

Using bold, colorful graphics, SOLO offers ways for older adults to combat the stress exacerbated by the pandemic while helping them live their best lives. It includes activities and videos to help stay mentally and physically fit, links to resources available to assist with those areas and short questionnaires to build active health plans.

Mark Berg is a member of the Pennsylvania Council on Aging and chairman of the Adams County Office for Aging’s Citizens Advisory Council. His email address is
