More Than Health Care - A Workforce Over 50
The Power of Engaging those Over 50 in the Social Sector
Janet Waters is one of 10 “encore fellows” across the US challenged with testing, trying, and learning about what it takes to engage folks who are over 50 years of age in volunteer and paid positions in the social sector. Not only do those served by these individuals benefit from their wisdom and compassion, but the 50+-somethings also enjoy the benefit of purpose.
The value of purpose in our lives has direct connections with health and wellness. Learn about Ascentria Care Alliance’s journey in this area and the difference being made in people’s lives as a result.
