Ameritas “You’re not Alone” Campaign for Seniors


United Way of Greater Cincinnati is proud to be a non-profit partner of the “You’re not Alone” campaign supported by Ameritas. The campaign drives awareness and support to senior citizen communities during COVID-19.

Retirement and nursing home facilities can often feel like a lonely place for many of its residents. Many count the days between visitors, and some may not receive visitors at all.

During this crisis, seniors are feeling more isolated than ever. Because they are at greater risk for contracting the coronavirus, many facilities have prevented outside guests. This means no visitors for residents.

United Way of Greater Cincinnati stepped in to help Ameritas identify local senior centers that are facing loneliness, isolation, fear, and overwhelmed caregivers.

The “You’re not Alone” campaign can help.

You and your family can help lift spirits by sending a note of encouragement. Visit to fill out a form and share this initiative on social media to let everyone know “You’re not alone.”

Nationwide bookseller, Barnes & Noble and promotional product vendor, Bob Stephens & Associates have also joined the effort to deliver activity books and hand sanitizer along with each of note, directly to the senior centers.

Let’s do our part to LIVE UNITED and show our seniors we haven’t forgotten about them.
