Description

Old Age – Our Future: Continuing the Conversation
A webinar series sponsored by the Community of Sant’Egidio, Catholic Charities USA and the Catholic Health Association of the United States

Earlier this year, the Vatican released, "Old Age: Our Future. The Elderly After the Pandemic." To emphasize the messages and create opportunities for sharing between ministries, CHA, the Community of Sant'Egidio and Catholic Charities USA offered a four-part webinar series to highlight the themes of the document. Watch a video that highlights the sessions and access webinar recordings and slides.

Please join us as we continue the conversation.

To allow planning for small group discussions, please indicate your preference. (There will be an opportunity during the registration process to choose one of the following): 

  • Advocacy/public policy
  • Alternatives to nursing homes
  • Helping parishes respond to older people
  • Visiting, volunteering older people at home

We are also offering opportunities for you to participate in this webinar. (There will be a Participation Opportunities Survey Link available in the registration receipt.)

Participation opportunites are:

  1. Spend five minutes describing how you are supporting older people.
    • Are you part of a parish or community program?
    • Do you
      • Participate in friendly visiting to reduce loneliness and isolation?
      • Help with home repairs or errands?
      • Offer related professional services to keep elders in their homes?
      • Engage community health workers?
      • Design new services as alternatives to nursing homes?
         
  2. Record an interview – or recommend someone we should interview – who is able to stay at home despite some frailty or limitations.

    Here are some questions we would ask:
    • What does it mean to you to be able to stay in your home, in your community?
    • Who or what helps you to stay independent?
    • What is one additional support that would help you in the weeks and months to come?
    • What are barriers to what you might want to do (such as go to church/faith community)? What would help you to overcome the barrier?
