Community, Connection and Consciousness

In this changing world, the aging experience is changing too. With change comes new opportunities to think and do things differently. One of the most exciting things about Elders Action Network is the opportunity we have to come together to learn from each other  and gain appreciation for this  new development phase of our life. In this way we build connections and find support as we explore what it means to be an elder taking action 

Join us as we continue to build a collective sense of community exploring issues related to being an elder through dialog and sharing.
