“Then Suzanne came here [to my home] and Dana too. Dana helped me a lot with some counseling. I have gotten a lot of friendship, which is nice. I really like the SOAR Program. I like the SOAR people. I think all of us in SOAR [Stepping Out and Reconnecting] have had our setbacks, and it’s nice to feel comfortable talking with people.”
– Judith, Age 69
Judith uses Senior Support Program of the Tri-Valley’s In-Home Counseling Program and works with counselors Suzanne and Dana. They introduced Judith to the Stepping Out and Reconnecting (SOAR) Program, a support group for isolated older adults to help them reconnect to themselves, each other, and the community.
