SAGE Friendly Visitor Program
The SAGE Friendly Visitor Program is an outreach program that provides weekly visits to GLBT elders (50+) residing in care centers and independent or assisted living communities who may need friendship, companionship, and support. Volunteer and senior matches are based on shared interests, personality, and volunteer availability as much as possible. If you would like to become a friendly visitor, know a senior, or are a senior who would benefit from this program please visit our SAGE Friendly Visitor page for more details.
SAGE Telling Your Story Project
Monday | 1:30 – 3:00pm
A storytelling group for elders. The sharing of life stories is a very rich and rewarding undertaking. Memories are stimulated, connections are made, and meaning is given to how we got where we are, both individually and as a community. Whether you choose to write or tell your stories aloud, your own history is worth sharing. If you want to be part of this wonderful and enriching experience, feel free to join in.
Read some of the wonderful stories from this group on The Telling Your Story blog.
