For Mark- How do you recruit youth right now when they are not in school? What kinds of organizations do you work with and how do they engage youth?

I’d like to learn more about the radio play program that Mark Meridy mentioned. Is it described on the Dorot website?

Digital divide... We are finding that those elders who are facil with computers/phones are connecting in beautiful ways with younger folks in the community. But those who aren't are relying on phone calls - which is fine for connecting to those over the age of 40, but those who are younger (especially the millennials, teens and children) doesn't work. Has anyone found any devices that really help seniors. Specific tablets or laptop suggestions welcome!
Leslee Abud
01:07:43
Mark: how do you address the "digital divide"...especially with adults in isolation!?!

Our program typically has monthly support groups for caregivers. We are looking at moving to a teleconferencing system during the cover-19 crisis. Have you tried teleconferencing for this type of support group or do you have any tips of how to keep older caregivers connected?
Stephen Elliott
01:09:52
I think your ewmphais is too high on those I would describe as over 85. What about those from 65-85 who are healthy and active, but still isolated somehow?
Karen Hochberg
01:09:52
Charissa, I have the same question. I run a Senior Center in Pittsburgh, PA. The challenge in programming is great. We do not know the tech level of many of our members. Starting with our Caregiver Support Group via Zoom could work for us.
Wendy Pender
01:10:41
For everyone looking for lower tech options, freeconferencecall is FREE, and easy. Been using them for years. Wonderful service!!

We are using Google Meet for our caregiver support groups. There is no download needed and they can call in via telephone. It is not as great as Zoom, but it has a lower tech threshold. We can call members from the meeting platform and invite them in that way.
Suzy Scragg
01:14:05
is there a fee associated with this?

I am unclear what SweetReaders youth are doing with their older adults without in-person visits

For Sweet reader program: how do you monitor to ensure the interactions are supportive and healthly

SO SO happy to hear about this program, Karen. What a fabulous intergenerational initiative here! TKS!
Liz Lightner

In 1989, my home ec teacher won an award for her “innovative program that helps elderly persons and teenagers break down age stereotypes.” It was called “Closing the Gap”… the course was called Personal Family Living.. I was in the 9th grade. That’s when I learned about death and dying.. and aging. I wrote a living will, we visited a crematorium, mausoleum, funeral home.. etc.. an amazing experience.. I wish every high school kid could have. SO.. here I am, at age 49.. trying to figure out how to do this in my small town. I launched a Dementia Friendly program here.. this ‘intergenerational’ idea.. I see as part of that. Here’s to my HS teacher, Phyllis Lamiman, who unfortunately passed at age 70 in 2016. This all also sounds like Big Brothers Big Sisters.. but with much older Bigs, and older Littles. Thanks for all you all do!

A few of you have been asking about remote caregiver support groups. Generations United has some information available about this in our grandfamilies fact sheet available at https://www.gu.org/covid-19/.

I write cards and tell the receiver to pass on the top half (not written on but with a pretty picture) on to a neighbor.. they’ve liked that. Especially my mother who has stopped “hoarding” all my cards.. now, she can pass them on.

Will there be a follow up email that will touch on many of the things that were shared today? There has been so much shared which is good but a lot to take in.

I’d like to encourage people to encourage youth and elders alike to work together to support healthcare workers… they are really suffering now and could use gratitude cards. Especially longterm care workers who are not getting as much support as they need.
Rd Plasschaert
01:39:01
Rather than re-inventing the wheel, I want more information on topics around “Collaboration”.

Stephen Elliott

Again, we need more on the younger, not necessarily “retired” who are 65-85. They are the truly forgotten and neglected by Aged, Agency, Encore, and other programs.
Kate Hoepke

future topic: how are the generations going to work together to rebuild/reorganize after the crisis has abated?
