Western for the Elderly

$5.00

The objective of Western for the Elderly will be to connect Western students with London’s elderly population in hopes to unite the two in sharing ideas, attending events and forming friendships. In a society with an ever aging population we seek to ameliorate the lives of the elderly using the young, enthusiastic personalities that Western students maintain in order to decrease the loneliness of the elderly and by helping them with everyday tasks. Our events aim to build a relationship between Western students and London’s elderly in order to close the gap between the differing perspectives and hobbies that these two groups maintain and have the opportunity to gain valuable experience volunteering at the affiliate long-term care homes.
