Written by Featured Organization on Tuesday, 01 April 2014 13:52.

But those behaviors are not indicative of an untruthful person.

Bad weather, increased noise and crowds, and health challenges may make it more difficult for loved ones from older generations to travel. Fortunately, there are ways to connect with them this holiday season that don’t require travel, said Rhoda Meador, director of the Ithaca College Gerontology Institute. “Elders are more technically advanced than most people think, and it is important for their health and well being to remain socially connected – even if it’s virtual.”
