Collective Commitments became a 501(c)(3) in 2016. We are a social enterprise club intent on finding public service projects that benefit Mainers and are ones where our talents can make a difference. Over the past 3 years we chose a different project each year where we thought we could add value.
We became a local chapter for Aging 2.0 in 2018. Our goal with our Aging2.0 work is to bring leading edge technology, innovations and knowledge to support a variety of Maine based Aging organizations. As a Local Chapter, we function as an extension of the Aging2.0 HQ Global team.
We view Aging as an opportunity to change the world.
Our 2019 Program Goals
1. Combat Ageism and Promote Inspiring Engagement.
We will build an event and produce a video modeled after a program delivered in the KC area in 2018 titled 70 over 70. This initiative raised vital awareness around the fact that our perceptions of age all too often do not align with reality. And, most importantly, it celebrated and honored the past, present and future contributions of some pretty amazing people. STAY TUNED as we figure out how to model a similar effort here to honor Mainers. We hope to hold the event in late 2019.
2. Advisors that are part of Elder Circle Inc. will advise individuals and their families on aging issues and resources in our communities.
As we age sometimes issues arise that may cause an elder or their family members to need some assistance. Where do they turn? Elder Circle Inc. has been active in the elder community of Maine for 38 years.
Elder Circlehas been on the cutting edge of Aging, Aging Dynamics and partnering with various types of elder communities. Elder Circle Advisors will work with elders who desire to age in place or within Age Friendly communities or others that may need to consider a facility that offers care support.
We offer families a unique caring perspective and we know how to navigate related systems. We are not financial advisors nor health advisors. We are however an Aging resource that knows first hand what Aging is.
3. Share innovation best practices and insights with other Maine organizations that operate in the Aging space.
