Want to “Stay Connected” while staying home and staying safe? The CT Department of Aging and Disability Services has a new grant program called “Stay Connected” that will provide technology such as laptops and tablets to older adults and individuals with disabilities who are increasingly socially isolated because of COVID-19. The grant even provides training on how to use the devices so you do not need to be a “techie” to give it a try. If you would like to be screened for the program, please call your local Area Agency on Aging at 1-800-994-9422 and ask for the “Stay Connected Program” in the CHOICES Department.
Please let us know if you are interested and we will set it up. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Center at 860-668-8830.
