We meet because we as members of an aging community need support as we age. We have a mission statement and charter for a community of OLLI members who commit ourselves to help each other in order to avoid institutionalization and isolation and facilitate aging in place. We are a support group: we share information, concerns, and resources, including our own issues and experiences with giving and needing help, and we help each other with difficult problems, choices, and plans. We talk about issues that are not easy to discuss elsewhere. New members are welcome at any time.
