Spencer House "Here With Friends" offers a safe, fun, inclusive space for seniors, combating isolation and loneliness.

Description of project

At Spencer House, we are meeting the changing needs and life's challenges of our older adults in the community. Many seniors are feeling increasingly isolated and lonely, which can lead to a decline in physical and mental health wellness. With our "Here With Friends" program, older adults (50+) gather and find community. We offer social and educational programs, health and referral services. Most importantly, we offer a place where folks join together with their peers in a safe, fun, and inclusive space.

We talk about issues that affect our senior population; issues that are important to them and the community. We laugh. We laugh a lot. We drink tea and coffee together.

At Spencer House, people are rarely put "on hold." We believe that personal communication is a valuable resource in effectively sharing information, enabling and contributing to seniors living healthy, independent lifestyles and empowering them to contribute to their own well-being and to the community.

We are lifting seniors from loneliness to connection, from isolation to community. At Spencer House, you are Here With Friends.
