Interactive storytelling to surface issues and opportunities in community on the evolution of caregiving in an aging society
All are welcome to a free event to re-imagine caregiving in the face of our aging demographic on Tuesday, May 10, at the Goldcorp Stage at BMO Theatre. The Centre for Hip Health & Mobility in partnership with Gen Why Media will host an evening of performance, storytelling, intergenerational dialogue, and expert and community insight to ignite an important conversation about the culture of care in our changing society.
Caregiving is a reciprocal, intergenerational act. It connects us, strengthens our relationships, and ultimately gives meaning to our lives.
As our demographic shifts to have more seniors in society than ever before, and family dynamics evolve, how might we re-imagine our caregiving relationships? How can we build more healthy, supportive and sustainable communities of care?
Join us for a powerful evening of storytelling, intergenerational dialogue and performance to surface the burning issues, pressing challenges, beautiful joys and incalculable value of caregiving in our society.
