During this time, CRN activities which can be done virtually are encouraged and will be supported by the use of virtual platforms, emails, and telephone calls.
All CRNs are being asked to consult with their affiliates and create appropriate ways to reach out to the vulnerable populations in their community. This can include setting up telephone trees, chat boxes, and other electronic methods.
World Elder Abuse Awareness Day on June 15 (if the situation continues) will be marked by communities finding unique ways to help to break the isolation of vulnerable adults as well as other ways to provide safe communication for those in the community who are fearful or are being abused.
There is so much we can do when we all work together.
Please contact us to share how your CRN is making a difference in your community!
