With 160-plus Area Agencies on Aging and other aging organizations in 40 states participating, the response to the Eldercare Locator Home for the Holidays Campaign has been outstanding.
Six weeks ago, n4a, in collaboration with AARP Foundation, launched a national campaign to raise awareness of the growing problem of social isolation and loneliness in older Americans. We developed a campaign brochure and a toolkit with information and resources that organizations used to educate the public about this serious issue. We are already in our second printing of the brochure “Expand Your Circles: Prevent Isolation and Loneliness As You Age,” so if you haven't already, order your copies while supplies last!
In order to measure the impact the campaign has had in communities across the country, we want to hear from you! Contact n4a Communications Director Dallas Jamison at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us what activities you have undertaken to help spread the word.
