I'm Nancy Angus.
I founded Age BIG in 2019. I believe everyone should age BIG -
Boldly, Inquisitively, Gratefully.
Our Sis Squad team gathers and shares stories from older adults. We create "meaning-filled" events to educate and enable aging-at-home. Age BIG focuses on fun, play and community in all we do!
We all age. Do it BIG!
Our BIG approach:
facilitate social connection, engagement, and friendship through a hybrid model of online and in-person gatherings with folks 60+.
work with and for seniors, in developing events, programs, and services that align with your needs, values, and interests.
Let Nancy tell you more about Age BIG and what we have to offer!
Latest News + Updates:
Age BIG and the Thunder Bay Museum collaborated on a digital storytelling workshop called PLACES & FACES: A Gathering of Older Adults' Digital Stories of Connecting, Belonging and Placemaking. Eight older adults wrote, voiced and produced digital video stories about the places that matter to them. Many of their stories focused on the places that made a difference to them during the pandemic. Well done, everyone!

Read what participants say about our programs:
"This opportunity enables me to connect with new individuals, some are becoming friends, with individual internet connection during the week. The diverse sessions have sparked me to try new things and to explore new websites. Age Big sparks hope and happiness through connection with this group."
"Just chatting makes us realize we are certainly not alone during this unprecedented time."
"We are a blossoming community of friends who increasingly feel comfortable sharing recipes, what we treasure and who we are. It is through our shared experiences of chats, guest presenters, learning and home play that relationships are building and feelings of aloneness are being dispelled."
