I'm Nancy Angus.
I founded Age BIG in 2019 as a means to connect people 60+ through bold, inquisitive and grateful actions. I work with a team we call the Sis Squad. We work together to support individuals to live and age in place.
Our BIG approach to aging:
facilitate social connection, engagement, and friendship through a hybrid model of online and in-person gatherings with folks 60+.
work with seniors and for seniors, 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!
Age BIG services are offered one-on-one and in groups,
both online and in-person.

"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."
