INDIANAPOLIS — With many seniors sequestered in their rooms at long term care facilities, there's another heartwarming effort to keep their spirits up.

It's an online buddy program helping connect isolated seniors to volunteers via Zoom.

The non-profit Seniors With Skills taps volunteers across the country to give the seniors a chance to interact from a safe distance.

Volunteers not only chat with the seniors, but they help them learn how to use iPads, computers, and other technology.
