SCOPE (see Info Links Page on the DSCA Website’s Home Page for information about SCOPE) is planning an Aging with Dignity Initiative. This initiative is a partnership of SCOPE, USF Sarasota-Manatee and The Patterson Foundation. The broad goal of this multi-year effort is to develop innovative and technological ways for older adults to age with dignity and independence. If you wish to participate online, simply go towww.scopexcel.org and click on the red bar on SCOPE’s home page. There are two options for participation – residents age 65+ may take a survey about dignity and independence. People of all ages may write briefly about a positive experience they had with an older adult.
Data collection will go on through January 23.
