You’ve Got a Friend: Stay Connected with the Activity Center

Like a friend you can lean on, the Connect2Affect Activity Center is always here for you with trusted advice to help you feel more connected.

Now that you’ve taken the social isolation assessment, you probably have a good idea of how connected you are. You may also be starting to see just how much a strong social network of friends, neighbors and loved ones that you can count on matters to your overall well-being.

But as anyone who has felt isolated can tell you, it’s hard to change your behavior. What works for one person may not work for another — and sometimes the hardest part is knowing where to start.

That’s where AARP Foundation’s Connect2Affect Activity Center comes in. Here, you can easily find supportive resources that will inspire you to take action. These helpful tools are available on the Activity Center whenever you need them.

Take Assessment

Take an Assessment

You can see your social isolation assessment results in your Activity Center, and you can also refer back to your personal recommendations for feeling more connected — especially if you’re feeling stuck.


If you haven’t already, we recommend taking the Social Connections Survey for a deeper understanding of the quality of your relationships and the strength of your network.
