These are difficult times - but Wowzitude can help. During this pandemic, it's more important than ever to look after all aspects of older adults' health: physical, emotional, and mental. Wowzitude offers a solution to the dilemma of how managers of long-term-care communities can keep elders safely engaged, by remotely connecting older adults to friends and community. And managers know that keeping residents happier and healthier is better for the entire community. Let Wowzitude's programs help your facility, and keep your older adults healthy.
Our hosts are a special part of the Wowzitude experience. Talented actors, comedians, and public speakers: "Wowzers" know how to engage an audience. Uniquely skilled at taking the temperature of an audience, their positivity, warmth and empathy allow them to spark excellent conversations to help groups cohere and keep participants wanting more.
Our team of travel guides are located around the world, ready to bring exciting destinations to older adults. Participants can visit the Australian bush, meet the geese on an Estonian farm, stride the streets of Montevideo, see Ireland's sweeping Cliffs of Moher - all without leaving their seats. They are expertly trained in video technology to ensure a seamless experience.
Our virtual travel programs include more than the live tour - our programs include a facilitated conversation between the audience and the guide, fun pop-up quizzes, and suggested activities. We provide, for example, traditional recipes that may offer an additional activity prior to the tour, so that groups may snack as they enjoy the history and lore behind the traditions.
Wowzitude's programs are flexible to meet the needs of older adults. Up to 25 people may attend the live program, to maximize participation. Then the programs are available on-demand for communities and families, further connecting older adults to friends. Residents may watch programs on closed-circuit TV channels, or see it on demand; they'll be seeing people they know. Edited program links may be sent to family members - anyone who is part of the wider community; this allows family members to continue the conversations with their loved ones.
Social activities as part of senior citizen services, are vital for sustaining the mental and emotional health of older people. But don't just take our word for it - research shows that connecting older adults to friends and community, greatly contributes to life-enhancing benefits.
