CRANSTON — The woman whose thoughts on paper practically jumped up and got busy giving older Rhode Islanders a way to engage socially while keeping their social distance, had no trouble thinking of a name for the program or selling it to the director of the state Office of Healthy Aging.
Maureen Maigret, former director of the same office, although then it was known as the Department of Elderly Affairs, proposed calling the new program “Project HELLO,” which spells out its mission: Helping Elders Limit Loneliness Outreach.
