Abstract/Description

Feeling lonely and being isolated is a big deal in the senior community. Most feel forgotten so coming to the senior citizen home can fill the void of loneliness that they suffer. Being at the Center provides them a time to be around people that they can talk to, listen to and enjoy. Most talk about how they enjoy us and look forward to us coming back each time, so we came up with The Storytelling Project. This project was designed to tell the stories of the Senior’s that we’ve talked to. The first day of service at the Murray-Calloway Senior Citizens Center we all spoke to different people, hearing different stories. We created a mini project that asked them questions about life when they were younger, following that we actually want to tell their stories. This project shows the generational gap between the senior citizens and our younger generation. We want to create stories and design different flyers to give to the senior’s families as well as sharing our stories within the service-learning community on campus so that they see and hear from the seniors in our community. This project is in effect in order to show seniors that they are not alone, and we haven’t forgotten about them and that we care.
