Socializing with Seniors

Research has shown that an active social lifestyle is an important factor in helping seniors maintain a sharp mind, remain connected to the world around them, increase feelings of happiness and develop a sense of belonging. The Morristown Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. created the program Socializing with Seniors to encourage healthy human interaction amongst seniors to provide and promote social, mental, and physical stimulation. Activities such as BINGO are along with light refreshments are conducted every two months rotationally to foster the continuation active and healthy lifestyles. Our aims are further expanded by promoting and advocating the importance of socializing seniors with members of the chapter. Our overall goal is to persuade more seniors at the Ann Street and Early Street Assisted Living Facilities in Morristown to participate in the aforementioned activities.
