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 a private Facebook group that provides a supportive space for those under the age of 65 living in residential aged care across Australia. This online platform gives 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 young people 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 communicate with our community team for support and to discover how Y-House might be able to assist them in their daily lives.

If you’re under 65 years and currently living in aged care
please join our Y-Connect facebook page.
