A growing portion of the age 50+ population is composed of “solos.” These are individuals who cannot or choose not to rely on family to help them navigate life events and make health decisions as they age. If you think the term “solo” applies to you and would be interested in being part of an ongoing solos pilot peer group, the Greenwood Senior Center's new "Backup Plan for Solo Agers" group is for you!
This group is designed to help solos plan for and manage health and well-being decisions and events—both large and small—during the second half of life. You’ll work with other solos to create a personal backup plan to make sure you have help and support when you need it. Semi-monthly peer group meetings will keep you on track and provide an opportunity to learn about resources, build skills, and form social connections. This will ultimately be a self-managing group, but a facilitator will get the group started and check-in occasionally to help the group be successful.
Beginning on Tuesday, February 8th, 2022, the group will meet via Zoom on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month from 5:30-7 pm.
This pilot group is part of the Greenwood Senior Center's Social Connection Project, which is funded by the King County Veterans, Seniors and Human Services Levy. To sign up for the group and obtain the Zoom link
