Unique Program Brings Adventure to Senior Centers

-A +A

Travel has the power to inspire and educate. Now, one creative program is helping seniors experience those benefits and more, all without leaving home.

Destinations Travelogue brings the sights and sounds of global travel to Extendicare centers across the U.S. With “passports” in hand, participants have the opportunity to learn about the history, culture, food and traditions of unique places around the world, including China, Ireland, India, the southwestern United States, the Caribbean, Kenya, Australia, Germany, Hawaii, and New Orleans.

 

To make the Travelogue adventures more memorable, some centers have included special guests. At Lake Country Landing, motorcycle enthusiasts were delighted with a road trip-themed event that included a visit from bikers who swapped stories with residents.
