Culturally Responsive Elder Connections

Dignity for older adults

Culturally Responsive Elder Connections offers positive cultural, educational and social experiences while supporting overall health and well-being to the elders within African American communities. Services are provided by culturally responsive associates that understand and relate to the changes faced within each respective community. Volunteers of America understands that elders are a vital and cherished segment of our communities and proud to offer person-centered, trauma-informed care to these remarkable individuals.

At this difficult time in our nation, many African American elders are experiencing strong memories and emotions as the continued social and racial inequities they face. In addition to the unrest within the community, elders can often experience lack of economic security, isolation, decreased mobility, as well as, the normal physical and mental changes associated with aging. Our program can fill a void in the lives of isolated African American elders, recommends resources and solutions to nurture whole-person wellness.
