Purposeful Connection

Carolyn Deters is the Executive Director at Gifts for Seniors, an organization that provides resources and life-affirming personal contact for isolated older adults. Here we discuss:

 

  • The inevitability of aging & our curious aversion to thinking about growing old
  • The value of providing space in which to feel purposeful
  • Socialization as the primary determinant of health
  • The collaborative impact approach she uses in her work
  • Aiming for quality of service over quantity of service.
