Say Aloha! with a gala dinner and silent auction event in August which will honor Dr. Betty Siegel, past president of Kennesaw State University.
The benefit will raise funds for Aloha to Aging, a local support for seniors and their caregivers based in Marietta. The mission of Aloha to Aging is:
- To provide a nurturing and socially stimulating environment for adults 55 and older who need engaging activities outside of their residence (and have primarily stopped driving). Aloha Day Club is therapeutically structured to include fellowship with peers, music, seated exercise, stimulating and creative activities, multigenerational programming and also a morning snack and lunch.
- To offer carepartner support group opportunities. The purpose of the support groups are to provide a safe environment to share emotions and experiences, give and receive emotional support, seek and give advice, and exchange practical information with others who are caring for an aging loved one. Currently we provide Alzheimer’s, Caregiver and Parkinson’s support groups.
- To involve and train volunteers to become an integral and important part of the programs. Our volunteers range in age from youth and teen through senior citizens. Opportunities for volunteerism range from providing food, a musical, art, or special talent or program volunteers for Aloha Day Club. Additional opportunities through fundraising efforts, grant writing, our Board of Directors and administrative assistance are available.
- To offer healthy aging, wellness and educational programs for active seniors.We offer Healthy Brain Game Days, Tai Chi, Stress Management, and Art programs.
Thus far, Aloha to Aging has positively impacted over 2,000 families to better understand and respond to the ever-changing needs associated with caring for an aging person.
