COVID-19 has Distanced Us in More Ways than One –
It’s Time to ReConnect

If you’re an adult aged 60 or above, we salute you for making important contributions to society as family members, volunteers and as active participants in the workforce.

We’d like to introduce you to the ReConnect EISOA Program.
ReConnect offers no-cost short-term, and private comprehensive services to Orange County residents ages 60 and above who are experiencing emotional challenges and overall health barriers, particularly those appearing later in life. Staying vital and connected can help you ward off the loneliness that often comes with aging.

ReConnect to Help Manage & Improve Emotional Wellbeing

Did you know? As many as one in four older adults experience mental and emotional challenges that can result in anxiety or mood disorders, including depression. These can be augmented by COVID-19, but the ReConnect team is here to help you overcome these feelings.
In fact, depression, anxiety, and loneliness are not a normal part of aging. If not addressed, they can lead to fatigue, illness and cognitive decline.
So, why consider ReConnect?
Aging impacts us all. Whether you are in need of assistance navigating the aging experience or facing a crisis with a parent or loved one, the Council on Aging’s ReConnect Program is here to help. In most cases, emotional and health issues respond well to the services and programs that we offer.
The good news? ReConnect is provided at no cost.

ReConnect to Improve the Quality of Your Life

Mental and emotional challenges are under-identified by healthcare professionals and adults themselves. Certain stigmas make people reluctant to seek help.
The ReConnect Program provides up to 12 months of services at no cost to you. This includes access to a case worker who works with you to create a personalized plan that addresses your needs.
