"STudents and ELderly Linking Around Relationships" strives to develop positive relationships among students and elders within the community. The group focuses on changing negative stigmas associated with elders and students alike and replacing them with positive views of both. Through community based activities the group creates a positive atmosphere and educates students of all majors on the needs of the elderly within the community along with informing them about the many opportunities for careers working with elders.
As a group, we are involved in the following activities:
- USI team for the Walk to End Alzheimer's
- Visit and provide activities at local care settings for older adults
- Adopt an elderly person
- Christmas parties for elderly people in assisted living facilities
- Seton Residence monthly birthday parties
