[Agency Name] Joins National Campaign to Raise Awareness of Healthy Aging in a Pandemic World

Providing services older adults and caregivers can access such as transportation, meals, in-home supports, caregiver services, social engagement activities, help understanding medical benefits, elder abuse and employment is a top priority for [Agency Name]. This is why we are participating in Home for the Holidays, a national campaign led by USAging and the Eldercare Locator.

Launched every year during the holiday season, Home for the Holidays encourages families to start conversations about what can be considered challenging topics about the health and welfare of older adults in their families. A new consumer brochure is the main component of this year’s campaign, Healthy Aging in a Pandemic World: What Older Adults and Caregivers Need to Know Now, which focuses on supporting older adults as they navigate a return to normal and assess the impacts of the pandemic on their own health and well-being.
