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."
