Seniors Dialogues

Whether seniors are moving into assisted living or staying in their own homes, there is a yearning amongst many seniors for meaning, purpose and belonging – a sense of home.

Benefits

Seniors dialogues offer an opportunity to:

  • Explore the meaning of home
  • Reminisce
  • Make new friends
  • Generate new ideas, insights and strategies
  • Learn about community resources

Process

Finding Home™ Seniors Dialogues begin by exploring why home and a sense of belonging matters. Participants identify their priority issues we customize follow-up dialogues. In one group, the seniors chose to discuss loneliness, moving homes and safety.

After each dialogue, together we turn the highlights into educational materials, such as posters. The posters become a visual legacy for the participants as well as a public education tool. Click here to download posters. Seniors then identify workable next steps.
