The Orange County Strategic Plan for Aging has a goal to tackle the issues around social isolation. In partnership with the Aging2.0 Orange County Chapter and the City of Mission Viejo Community and Senior Center, we will host this event to identify challenges older adults are facing around loneliness and how to overcome the challenges using possible solutions using technology. Friendly visitors, case managers, older adults, local organizations, technology-minded folks are all invited to attend this free event. As we brainstorm during this Ideathon, our intention is to design WITH older adults in our community, rather than FOR older adults, so EVERYONE is welcome to attend! If you are interested in being a table facilitator, participating as a volunteer, or to be a designated vendor at the event, please email the Aging2.0 Orange County Chapter team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
