why are we doing this?
Our team and our participants feel strongly about advocating for the unique needs and illuminating the perspectives of older adults living in the community and care homes.
Many older adults face stigma and isolation: creative engagement, socializing, and contributing in a meaningful way can have a huge impact on participants mental health.
We believe this work can profoundly impact the way others perceive older adults by elevating their strengths and providing an avenue to express their experience.

We are a group of collaborators with vastly different backgrounds and approaches. By sharing our trials and our victories, we hope to pave the way for others inspired to do similar work in their communities.
