Wij & corona is a Dutch platform where the experiences of older people during these trying corona times are shared. With this we give the voice of seniors a stage and support and inspire each other!
It is a strange, uncertain and frightening time, especially for healthcare organizations and older people. The coronavirus largely freezes public life. The measures to keep distance from each other and to stay at home drastically changes our lives. How do seniors in the Netherlands experience these exceptional times? What do they worry about, what gives them hope and comfort, how do they spend the day?
At https://wijencorona.nl/ we collect their stories and give them a stage to share their experiences. The stories provide distraction, recognition and guidance. It proves to be very valuable that they can express themselves in these uncertain days.
