Later in Life Program staff does phenomenal work with educating the community on elder and later in life abuse, and especially with engaging older adults. We provide training to a small team of Senior Ambassadors, as well as activities including ballroom dancing, movement exercises, Muay Thai, and expression arts and craft for our different groups.
Participants have expressed how the groups help them feel less isolated and lonely because they look forward to seeing the facilitators every week along with their friends in the group. Previous participants who have attended multiple cycles shared that they’re now willing to travel to all three boroughs just to attend the group.
Womankind was honored to celebrate survivors' Golden Years this Elder Abuse Awareness Month, and we are proud to help them heal from their trauma and violence. As we wrap up this month, thank YOU as well for supporting Womankind and older survivors of gender-based violence.
