Vibrant Living for Men

September 1, 2016:  Vibrant Living for Men
Location:  The Piper Assisted Living and Memory Care, Kansas City, KS
Presenter:  Glenn Blacklock, Administrator

This all-day workshop will explore options for helping men to live more vibrant and satisfying lives.  We will discuss the current state of most activity programs, which are often heavily focused toward activities enjoyed by women.  We will also identify the reasons activities and pastimes can’t just be left to Activity professionals anymore.  Everyone needs to be involved. This practice makes for an environment that opens the door for everyone in the organization to share their passions and interests.  Relationships flourish and spontaneous things begin to happen.  As men begin to rethink what they can and would like to do, they often find new purpose and meaning in their lives, and their once-vibrant spirits rise again.
