Neighborhood Networks centers allow seniors to gain access to health
programs and services such as:
classes and Internet access.
||Social and cultural
Centers also offer seniors an arena to use wisdom gained from decades
of experience. Centers may establish an intergenerational program that teams a senior resident with a local student. Through the program, seniors can mentor the student and share life experiences.
For example, Leonid Solodar served as a colonel in the Russian
Army before immigrating to the United States.
He used the Russian language computer software at the Covenant House
Neighborhood Networks Center in Brighton, Massachusetts, to
create a family history for his grandchildren, complete with photographs
and information dating from the 1800s.
