Do Seniors Network?
Who said networking is for business people and business people only? If you ever thought that networking is not a senior’s thing – think again.
Networking is an effective activity for everybody - from all walks of life and from all ages. Sometimes it’s hard to separate the word from professional advancement but simply put, it is the exchange of information between two or more people that may benefit either party. So how does networking benefit seniors?
There are many exchanges that can help the elderly – new health information or lifestyle routines are normally the conversation centerpiece. In my experience with seniors, one of the most valuable networking discussions is when seniors talk about the programs and events they’ve attended. It’s really an opportunity to get a sense of whether a community program is right for you.
In the spirit of making connections, a group of community-based organizations are getting together to showcase their community supports for seniors. We are inviting Dr. Magic to perform some tricks and a local pianist to keep the rhythm going. Please see the event information page for the Magic of Connections Community Fair at the Barbara Frum Branch.
