Acacia has launched a series to nurture the physical, mental and socio-emotional wellness of essential workers and older adults (ages 60+) to address these groups’ specific vulnerabilities to feelings of isolation and despair. They engaged seniors enrolled in their Institute for the Puerto Rican/Hispanic Elderly (IPRHE) Senior Centers, the majority of whom were accustomed to attending in-person activities on a daily basis. The Virtual Wellness Series consists of weekly workshops and events through a virtual platform, with topics including physical fitness, relaxation, mindfulness, music and dance, among others.
