    I understand that this is a difficult situation for seniors, but this probably is not the best time for in person socializing.. esp in cities like Chennai. Physical health takes priority over mental health in this COVID situation.. This may be a good time to catch up with friends and familiea over facetime or whatsapp.

    Angela,
    I'm trying to form such a group for my mother. Her friend passed away recently and she's missing out on social circle.

    Are they interested in religious activities? My parents participate in Satya Sai events online.

    Ranchu my mom is in one program where they have yoga and spiritual classes (online). She says they even have test. She is totally into this program .
    One other option is ask your mom to join cook for covid program in Chennai. If she likes cooking then she can do from home. They offer groceries and pickup option. There are so many online spiritual classes conducting shloka class and pooja class. Check in local FB groups.
