Recognizing Care Workers this Mother’s Day
This Mother’s Day, LeadingAge is inviting all Americans to join us in the fight to protect the older people we care about most (like our moms!). A new social media campaign is designed to lift up the care workers who have dedicated their lives to caring for older Americans—and are risking their own lives during this crisis. Through Sunday, LeadingAge’s national social accounts will feature the new Mother’s Day campaign.

This new, shareable creative direction aligns with the many wonderful local campaigns we’ve seen across the country—and the materials you can use to join us! Encourage the residents, clients, family members, and neighbors in your community to like, share, comment, and celebrate care workers this weekend. The more we amplify the message, the more we can help the public better understand how very important these heroes are.
