Join NU-HOPE in celebrating National Older Americans Month and Reconnecting

This year’s theme: Powered by Connection

Every May, American celebrate National Older Americans Month, a time to highlight the invaluable contributions our older residents have made to our community and to honor their wisdom, resilience, and vitality.

This year’s national theme, “Powered by Connection,” reminds us of the importance of interacting with others and the danger of social isolation. It is powerful, timely message. It matches NU-HOPE’s longstanding mission to help seniors to be independent and engaged members of their own communities. This theme also forms the basis of a new year-long initiative being led by NU-HOPE: Connect Together Now.

The Connect Together Now initiative is designed to call attention to the importance of meaningful connections.

It sounds simple- but so often we face barriers or silos that affect how we connect…things such as an inability access transportation, accomplish something that’s only available on line, communicate effectively, afford items or experiences, or even engage in things that reflect our culture or personal interests and needs.

For some, these barriers may be crushing, resulting in closing themselves off to others. For other, the impact can be more subtle, causing inefficiency, frustration, anger and a reduced ability to connect with the relationships, organizations, information and opportunities we need.

There are things we can do, however, to improve.

We can ensure that there are volunteer opportunities and low cost, and safe places that foster social connections- ones that are available and accessible to people of all ages and abilities. One important resource is the NU-HOPE Senior Meal and Activity Center. We can ensure that technology enhances, rather than replacing, our personal, business, and professional interactions. And we can work harder on establishing friendly, human connections.

So here’s to new connections. To being seen.  To being heard. To being just a little better. We know we can do it.  At least we are willing to try.  Will you join us?
