“The Wisdom Connection” Listening Call for Seniors
As we move through the many changes to our daily lives associated with the COVID-19 virus, the Town of DeWitt is offering weekly “Wisdom Connection” listening calls for our community’s seniors.*(See below regarding alternative listening call groups.)
The calls are intended to build community and connection for seniors during this challenging time. It is also an opportunity for our seniors – one of our greatest resources, especially right now – to share their abundance of wisdom, knowledge, and experience.
The calls are free and will provide all participants an opportunity to share, listen to other members of the group, support one another, and receive helpful tips, tools, and coaching to assist them during this difficult, isolating time.
The listening calls will be facilitated by Kelly Grace Smith. Kelly is a life coach consultant and communications professional. She has worked locally in the communications field for more than 35 years – as a certified life coach co-facilitating listening, leadership, and personal growth and development seminars for professional men and women for more than 20 years - and also served in DeWitt town government as an elected official and now as a communications consultant.
The calls are free, will be one hour in length, 1 x per week for 4 weeks, and will be conducted via an easy-to-use, no cost conference calling platform. The call will be conducted every Wednesday, 7:00 to 8:00pm from April 29th to May 20th. If many residents respond, additional calls and time slots will be scheduled as needed.
The calls are confidential – all participants will be asked to pledge confidentiality – and first names only may be used if participants are more comfortable with that!
