Elderly Empowerment

Seeking independence, seniors turn to workshops and clubs to stay connected

Implications - Taking their daily lives back into their own hands, seniors and retirees are turning to empowering workshops and organizations to stay both mentally and socially connected. Eliminating the need to reply on family members for support, aging consumers are taking the opportunity to learn new skills and connect with peers. This not only allows for a more engaging lifestyle, but also encourages a sense of independence.
