Banyan Community’s 55+ Elders Program has been moving along well since it kicked off in the fall of 2023. We are grateful to have reliable transportation with the Banyan vans to help seniors with transportation to gatherings.

“We are a really relational organization and building trust is so important.” -Carl Schlueter, Executive Director

A variety of engaging activities have been coordinated. From chair yoga and yard games to cookie baking and bingo, the program has offered a diverse range of opportunities for the elders to stay active, socialize, and enjoy meaningful conversation.

The program, which meets twice a month, has been expanding Banyan’s reach to serve an older generation, providing a space for this demographic to come together, connect, and participate in enriching experiences. The thoughtful curation of activities has fostered a sense of community and well-being among the participants, as they navigate the joys and challenges of this stage of life.

With consistent attendance, meaningful relationships are developing. One senior even came into fix a drawer in the Banyan kitchen! Banyan Community’s commitment to supporting its elders is a testament to our holistic approach to community development, ensuring that no one is left behind and that everyone has access to the resources and opportunities they need to thrive.
