Perhaps card game nights that span various ages randomly paired together
What are some creative ideas you have to ensure the UACC feels welcoming to all?
Information desk at forefront when walking in to greet and help with resources. Cross train lots of staff to be a ‘host’. Include intergenerational opportunities. Pictures (action shots) of variety of community residents that change monthly or seasonally.
Have a public area in the entry area with maybe 10 seats, where a prominent sign is displayed that says, “Please introduce yourself to all people in this area. Conversation encouraged.”
If people feel too busy or not in the mood for social interaction, they won’t sit in this area. People wanting to meet new people will sit here.
Have a shuffle board court we have 14 shufflers playing every Monday and Wednesday
Let’s create something to pair UA residents with other residents who are different
I think a friendly staff is of extreme importance. The staff should be welcoming and attentive when members enter the center.
I’d like us to make all aspects of the building process, building itself and associated facility as green as possible.
Co-CREATE WITH US!
