Tell your stories!
Now, more than ever, it's important to change the narrative about older people—away from negative stereotypes and to highlight how older people are an incredible resource to our communities and our workplaces.
Consider all the ways that older people are stepping up in the COVID-19 crisis: taking care of grandchildren so that first responders can work; coming out of retirement to help our health care workforce; tutoring children or reading to them online while schools are out; using sewing skills to make masks; delivering groceries or running errands; volunteering virtually; making calls to people who are isolated; mentoring young business owners who may be going through their first economic crisis; and lots more.
If you or someone you know is involved in making your community better in some way and would like to be featured in a blog or on social media, let us know.
Sharing your story is easy. Fill out the form to the by right (note that email and zip code are required field), and let us know how you'd like to get involved. We'll be in touch.
Thanks so much!
