[ARCHIVED] Like a Good Neighbor Social Isolation Campaign
Like a Good Neighbor Social Isolation Campaign
The COVID-19 pandemic has left many senior adults lonely, missing the connections of family and friends. Loneliness and social isolation in older adults can have tangible effects on their health and well-being including but not limited to depression, anxiety, cognitive decline, even physical complications such as heart disease. In an effort to combat this issue, Davidson County Senior Services is excited to introduce the Like a Good Neighbor Campaign.
We would like to extend an invitation to you to be a part of this community project. We have developed a toolkit that includes engagement activities and resources to help lonely older adults feel connected again. In order for this project to be a success, we need the support of organizations like yours to help promote the campaign. The more people involved, the more seniors we will reach. Contact Senior Services to find out how you can get a toolkit to begin your own campaign to help prevent isolation and loneliness.
