2014 was a remarkable year for Engage As You Age. We hired some amazing activity specialists who profoundly impacted many lives. We lost some of our favorite clients and met some amazing new ones along the way.
2015 will be Engage’s seventh year in business. I’ve learned so much from the thousands of seniors that I’ve met and hundreds of activity specialists that I’ve hired. Still, what I’m most struck by is how many new things I learn each day and how many socially isolated seniors there are. It’s a privilege to walk into so many people’s homes and try and find a way to make someone smile. It’s humbling to learn that I can’t do that for everyone and unbelievably rewarding to know that I’ve made many lives richer by matching people up who wouldn’t have met if not for Engage.
I encourage readers of our blog to reach out to us and tell us what they’d like us to write about, who they think we should hire and also who they think we should help. We’d like to help as many socially isolated seniors as possible in 2015. Happy New Year!
