Social Club at Elizabeth Woods Senior Apartments

Cook up some fun with a lively group of seniors! Prepare and serve a healthy breakfast to low-income residents and afterward join them in a spirited interactive game. Your participation also expands the facility’s capacity for improving resident’s overall quality of life. Chicago Cares’ volunteer projects are opportunities to connect with our neighbors, challenge our assumptions, change how we think and feel about our city, and inspire action – all while making a tangible, positive impact through service.

Description
During this project volunteers will engage with residents as well as prepare breakfast and play bingo with the residents.

Transit Information
This location is accessible via the #37 Sedgwick and #73 Armitage buses as well as CTA Red Line North/Clybourn stop or the CTA Brown/Purple Line Sedgwick or Armitage stops.

Program Goal
The purpose of this model is for volunteers to engage with residents to promote community and combat social isolation to support residents’ health and wellness.

Impact of Program
Isolation and a lack of positive community can be detrimental to the mental health and physical well-being of an individual, especially aging populations. Through this program, volunteers will start to become informed advocates for healthy aging and for people who are most at risk for isolation.
