Y-Connect

Starting 26 Nov 2020 - Closing 22 Aug 2021

With most Australian aged care facilities currently in lockdown due to COVID-19 restrictions, social engagement is now harder than ever for young people living in aged care.

Y-Connect is an online private Facebook Group aimed at providing support for those under the age of 65 living in residential aged care across Australia. This online platform gives these young people an opportunity to connect & interact with other individuals living in similar situations by sharing their stories & experiences.

Y-Connect is a great online resource for individuals to keep connected within their community and can assist those experiencing feelings of isolation and loneliness. The group also provides young people with an opportunity to discover how Y-House might be able to assist them with their daily lives.
