  1. 7/12/2018 1 Aging Adults Virtual Neighborhood Presented by the Painesville Senior Center Painesville Senior Center 2 • The Painesville Senior Center is a non-profit organization committed to making a positive impact on the aging community through a variety of programs & events contributing to overall well-being through: recreation, socialization, education & fitness. • Its history spans over 45 years of service. That’s quite a lineage. • In recreating a Vision Statement applicable to our current environment, leadership focused on establishing a new foundation. One that includes a strong cornerstone of collaborative partnerships. That’s you folks • Because our physical footprint is transitional at this time, we have chosen to place our cornerstone in a mobile foundation that can expand and relocate as necessary. With the intent to reestablish a permanent location within the City of Painesville. Seniors Today, Tomorrow and In the Future 3 • In October of 2015 the Lake County Senior Citizens Advisory Panel requested the services of a consultant to conduct a senior citizen needs assessment/gap analysis and to facilitate development of a factual based strategic blueprint for sustainable programming and investment on behalf of its senior citizens. The main purpose of that research was to guide decision making for the Senior Levy distribution. • One of its issues to be addressed was the suggestion to consider alternative models of the traditional senior center in order to meet more needs. It is from this verbiage and communications with a west coast virtual senior center model, that our Aging Adults Virtual Neighborhood was created. This program embraces the challenge to meet senior needs on an innovative level. Our target base is as broad as the age span of AARP Seniors Today, Tomorrow and In the Future 4 • The most independent, still in the workforce neighbor, can utilize our programs at a time that is convenient to their schedul e. The tween that just doesn’t feel old enough to go to a traditional senior center but wants some type of interaction can pick and choose their activities. And a more homebound neighbor can be just that – homebound- but still participate in the community through technology. • This is our future. This can be our reality. Let’s pool our resources and succeed together for the future of Lake County’s aging population…. Communication Technology 5 • This mobile foundation will be formed out of virtual communication technology. Which is the ability to hear and or see one another in real time: simulating the experience of a physical visit. This includes devices as common as a traditional landline to flip phones, smart phones, tablets and computers. 6 Aging Adults Virtual Neighborhood • Welcome to our Virtual Neighborhood! • Painesville Senior Center’s new ability to connect our aging population to their peers within the comfort of their own reside nce, to create a neighborhood, a neighborhood of engaging adults. • Our commitment to the community will be similar to that of a Home Owners Association. We’ve already secured the lots by creating the program’s platform and a wide array of home styles are move in ready. All we need now are neighbors! 7 Partners & Hosts • Who are they? They are you…
