Care Connection Campaign

March 15, 2021

AUCD partner, GT Independence, has launched a unique initiative to combat the impacts of social isolation from the pandemic. The "Care Connection Campaign" began March 1st to raise awareness of the effects of social isolation and engage members of the public with storytelling about their plans for a future ‘Connect Day' with loved ones that are isolated. AUCD members are encouraged to participate in the campaign! You can use the tips shared on social media to check-in on older individuals and those with disabilities in your family, neighborhood, and community.

To learn more about the Care Connection Campaign, visit the company's Facebook page. There, look through the list of tips and tricks to combat social isolation, share your favorite tip, and describe what your dream Connect Day would look like. This campaign runs through the end of March, so don't wait!
