Who can attend
February is National Senior Independence Month, which provides an opportunity to celebrate older adults and spread awareness of information and resources that are available to help support them and their independence throughout their journey.
The word independence means something different to every individual depending on their age and life circumstances. One of our goals at My Glacier Village is to help the senior citizens in communities across the Flathead Valley maintain their independence by helping seniors who wish to age in place in their homes by providing education and support services, making referrals to the appropriate resources to fit their specific needs, encouraging social interaction, and building an inclusive and supportive community.”
Roughly 20% of individuals living in Montana are ages 65 and older. This is expected to grow to nearly 30% by the year 2030. National Senior Independence Month allows individuals to give back and show that they care for the elderly members of the community. Reach out to My Glacier Village for info about becoming a member or ask about available volunteer opportunities. It is a great way to create an inclusive community and celebrate the value and knowledge that senior citizens add to the community.
