We are doing this project because according to AARP social isolation happens to 1 in 5 people of ages 65 and older. We will have the opportunity to get the seniors more involved in activities to broaden their social life and build a relationship with them.
Juniors Valerie Seeley and Kristin Wetterau will be visiting Parkview Health Center and Gabriel's Villa, which are both nursing facilities in the Oshkosh community. They will be serving the residents on Mondays and Tuesdays. Their hope is to bridge the gap between two different generations.
Their partners are Tim Laurin (one of the many activity directors at Parkview) and Ann Nowak (activity director at Gabriel's Villa).
