Discussion Summary

Member Sylvia starts the discussion on ways to stay socially connected later in life. For those not seeking dating opportunities, there are several resources for finding affinity groups, associations, and activity-based clubs. These are all the more necessary, as we are reminded by another member, due to the loosening of family and community ties from increased relocation and less face-to-face communication.

Those discussed included:

  • Stitch and Boomerly are websites to find companionship and others with similar interests   
  • The Village movement supports Aging in Place at home
  • Meetup Groups
