The Aging With Purpose Connections Program
The “Aging with Purpose” (AWP) initiative explores creative ways to engage and connect seniors who are primarily home-bound with the community around them. With an emphasis on continued growth as we age, this program 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.
Volunteers are participating with seniors in a variety of fun and meaningful activities such as:
- Friendly One-on-One Visits
- Telephone Connection Calls
- Improvisational Dance (Seated Dance Movement)
- Art Lessons
- Assist with Technology
- Rooted in Love Plant deliveries
