Staying connected, even while staying
As social distancing and
physical isolation became a part of our
daily routines, we began to understand the
overwhelming feelings of loss and loneliness
being separated from the community can bring
that people living with dementia experience
in their normal, day-to-day lives.
At the Alzheimer Society, we
strive to do everything we can to minimize
those feelings of loneliness and isolation
by providing people living with dementia and
their care partners access to our social and
recreation programming. We have continued to
offer many of our programs and services
virtually, but we
need your help to continue. That’s why
we created Social
with a Purpose - a do-it-yourself
fundraiser that promotes the importance of
socializing, staying in touch, and building
strong, positive relationships with your
friends, family, and community.
Now more than ever, it is
important to find new, creative ways to feel
close to each other, even while staying
From an online card game with
friends, spicing up your Zoom meeting with a
game of BINGO, or creating your own way to
virtually get together with your friends and
family, you can support people living with
dementia by turning your virtual
social gathering into a fundraiser!
