The cure for pandemic loneliness? Friends of a different generation. – The Washington Post

As more people get vaccinated and life slowly returns to normal-ish this summer, Killam told me that connecting with elders in your community doesn’t have to be a dramatic initiative; it’s about taking one small action. Whether you volunteer through a local elder-care organization, use an online tool designed to foster intergenerational connection, reach out regularly to your grandparents or your great aunt (or your partner’s great aunt!), organize a backyard potluck, leave a note in a neighbor’s mailbox, or bring a neighbor long-stem roses, there is power in spending more time with those older (and younger) than you.
