The experience of aging can be, all at once, fresh and exhilarating but also unsettling as our roles and abilities change and our perceptions of ourselves have to adapt to this transition. The best way to support this natural evolution for all of us is to keep having open and illuminating conversations together. That’s why Institute on Aging is organizing regular opportunities around San Francisco for candid conversations about aging and how to connect to services and resources that are both accessible and life-changing for older adults. Developing these initiatives proactively supports our collective future.
We’re calling this event series Cocktails for the Ages. When you come to share drinks and conversations with the community, a portion of the proceeds goes toward scholarships that give aging and disabled adults in need the opportunity to attend our Social Day Program. This day care option is a welcoming space for all older individuals, including those with Alzheimer’s and dementia, and the programming is designed to engage the diverse needs and interests of our clients. Transportation and healthy meals are included as part of our mission to dissolve the barriers to warm and fulfilling care. For families and caregivers, the program can provide respite and time to tend to self-care. It certainly does take a village to nurture our best future.
Social activities like our Social Day Program are critical for aging adults’ overall health and cognitive well-being. In fact, we all benefit from productive socialization, so join us for one of our exciting evenings and bring friends and family who are also interested in our creative, collective path.
