Resources for staying home, staying healthy, and staying happy during the COVID-19 crisis

Our homes are usually the places where we are most relaxed and comfortable - until we're obligated to stay there and not see the people we enjoy spending time with. All of a sudden, our home is a stressful place that feels strange and awkward. It is even harder when we are facing circumstances made more difficult by the crisis.

Direction Home Akron Canton Area Agency on Aging and Disabilities (DHAD) is here to help. Our specialists in the Aging and Disability Resource Center are available Monday through Friday, 8 am to 5 pm to provide assistance and information to you. Call 877-770-5558 to speak with us today.

In the meantime, take some time to enjoy the things you love to do away from home at home. Here are some great resources gathered by DHAD staff for you to use. Enjoy some takeout, get your groceries during exclusive senior hours, visit a museum on your computer, or exercise and increase your balance remotely with our online Tai Chi class. There are a lot of options available! If you know of some that are missing from these lists, please share them with us. We'd love to hear from you! Email with details. We will frequently update these lists for you.
