VIRTUAL SENIOR CENTERS

December 10, 2019 at 4:45 am

For senior citizens who can no longer socialize, loneliness is more than a matter of happiness. One New York-based company has found a solution to address the problem by offering seniors a place to connect, learn and play online, using virtual reality to make real friends. David Dring, executive director of Selfhelp Innovations, is here with your tour of Selfhelp Virtual Senior Center (VSC).

Aired on February 6, 2018; August 16, 2018 & October 3, 2019.
