June 2022

Throughout the month of June for Seniors Month, we introduce the #ElderWisdom Campaign encouraging Schlegel Villages’ team members, community influencers, and younger generations to engage and celebrate the knowledge and talents older adults have to offer.

Patricia & Dennis Bayley

#ElderWisdom is meant to challenge the stigma and ageism older adults face in society. It reminds us of the wealth of wisdom older adults offer and, in doing so, helps restore them to a place of reverence. In our 7th year, The Green Bench is a symbol of #ElderWisdom; physically or virtually, the bench invites us all to sit alongside a senior, share a conversation or give and offer advice.

Thank you to everyone who joined us on the green bench – continue to share the importance of seniors to our communities on social media and use the #ElderWisdom tag.
