Aging With Purpose

This initiative, being piloted with Senior Services’ program participants, explores creative ways we can engage and connect homebound elders with the community around them.

The “Aging with Purpose” (AWP) initiative looks for ways to engage homebound seniors with the community around them. With an emphasis on continued growth as we age, the pilot seeks creative ways to tap into the interests, knowledge, and abilities of seniors participating in Senior Services’ programs.

This initiative is aimed at finding personally meaningful engagement activities to combat the three plagues of loneliness, helplessness and boredom, which often lead to depression and increased medical challenges among seniors.

AWP volunteers are participating with seniors in a variety of fun and meaningful activities such as:

In-Home Pet Visits
Telephone Visits and Wellness Calls
Art Classes
Living History Interviews
