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.
That’s why we created Social with a Purpose, a rebranding of Coffee Break® that is a do-it-yourself fundraising program 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 stay connected to our friends and family and at the same time, raise funds to support important services to help ensure people living with dementia are not isolated.
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!
