Senior neighborhood Net (SenNet)

Purpose

Senior neighborhood Net (SenNet) is a program to inspire and ignite kindness and promote neighborhood network in two target communities, Chinatown and Panorama Hills, for Chinese older adults and their families to live a happy and independent life in an age friendly community.

 

 

Objective

  • Build up community natural support through enhancing neighborhood network
  • Increase the neighborhood engagement and community awareness of the issues and challenges facing older adults in their community
  • Enhance the knowledge and confidence of neighbor volunteers in helping older adults
