Campaign to Combat Isolation & Loneliness in Older Americans Launched!
Given the vital role of the Aging Network in providing crucial home and community-based services and supports for older Americans, AAAs are uniquely positioned to shine a light on this problem and to lead the way in finding solutions. Even though the campaign just launched, over 70 AAAs from coast-to-coast have already contacted us to learn how they can conduct public education campaigns in their communities! Please contact Dallas Jamison, n4a Director, Communications at 202.872.0888 or firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how you can help.
To support your efforts, we developed a campaign toolkit, containing all the components you need to spread the word. You can also order the campaign publication: “Expand Your Circles: Prevent Isolation and Loneliness As You Age,” a full-color, glossy brochure that provides tips and resources to help older adults reduce their risk or take steps to get reconnected if they are already isolated; it also features a Self-Assessment Checklist, to enable older adults and caregivers to evaluate whether there is a potential problem.
By working together—nationally and in communities across the nation—we can make a difference in the lives of so many older Americans who are at risk or suffering today. Please join us!
