Ten at the Top’s Senior Issues Committee brings together senior service providers to identify opportunities for collaboration around the needs of seniors in the Upstate.  In September of 2018, a group of 15 convened to discuss goals for 2019. It was determined that moving forward, that this group must be more purposely and intentional with their approach to address senior needs collectively. After much conversation, the group decided to move forward with topic focused meetings that address the top senior needs in our region.

The Appalachian Council of Governments proposed that the group utilize data from their 2018 Senior Needs Assessment which was conducted in early fall. It was agreed that these topic focused workshops seek to address the most pressing senior needs that were identified in this assessment. The programs will address topics such as senior transportation needs, food access and healthcare.

There will be 4 workshops hosted over the course of 2019. The purpose is to educate and raise awareness to a variety of community stakeholders. This will create an opportunity to begin a much larger discussion of senior issues at a regional level.

The first workshop will be on February 7th where we will discuss Senior Lifelong Learning in the Upstate. The workshop will feature a panel discussion lead by Nancy Kennedy with the Olli Center at Furman University.

Panelists Include:

Andrea Smith, Executive Director and CEO at Senior Action, INC.

Morgan Jordan, Director, Lifelong Learning at Wofford College

Dr. Jack Hansen, OLLI Member Furman University
