Older Adults: Share Your COVID-19 Experience: Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation & Root Cause.

  community member   < less

We are looking for adults 60 years and older in Washtenaw County to share your daily experiences with us.
The Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation and Root Cause are studying what healthy aging looks like in Washtenaw County - on a "normal" day, and especially now during the coronavirus outbreak. Are you able to see a doctor when needed? What is it like to cover your expenses and meet your daily needs? What worries you? What helps and what gets in the way of really living as we get older?
We are interested in seeing life in Washtenaw County through your eyes, and would like to first speak to you on the phone about what your daily routine looks like. When we talk, we can also discuss other ways to share your experiences like taking photos or keeping a journal. If you are interested, a small stipend will be provided.
If interested, please contact Alekhya ASAP: achaparala@rootcause.org.
Date: through Apr-May 2020
By Phone. Free. Online. 617-475-1616. ACHAPARALA@ROOTCAUSE.ORG
