Social with a Purpose

About Social with a Purpose

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 us—feelings that people living with dementia experience in their normal, day-to-day lives.

Host a virtual social gathering fundraiser that promotes the importance of socializing, staying in touch, and building strong, positive relationships while being apart.
