New Community Partnership: Silver Sherpa
We are thrilled to announce a community partnership between Silver Sherpa and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Halton!
Silver Sherpa is a lifestyle transitions company that provides independent and personalized advice on smart aging and lifestyle transitions. They offer a unique and innovative approach to assisting the elderly and their families prepare for and respond to the inevitable lifestyle challenges associated with aging: health crises, loss of a partner, social isolation, financial issues, dwelling arrangements, and any other factors that put their quality of life at risk.
Once a plan is developed, Silver Sherpa acts as a trusted co-pilot, coordinating professionals and service providers to help elders simplify important life decisions, figure out pragmatic options, and facilitate planned transitions.
Silver Sherpa’s founder, Susan Hyatt, is passionate about the well-being of elders and understands it’s vital to develop community initiatives that improve quality of life. Connecting youth-based organizations and elders is one of those initiatives, which is why Susan says “we are very proud and appreciative of our relationship with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Halton. It provides for inter-generational relationships and volunteer opportunities for elders, and a way for us invest in the community”.
Silver Sherpa has committed to making a donation to BBBS Halton each time a local individual or organization makes a client referral.
According to Barb Ferrone, “Big Brothers Big Sisters of Halton values the contributions of our elders and is excited to explore inter-generational activities between our organizations. We both embrace the principle of giving back to ‘the villages’ in which we work, play and live, and Silver Sherpa’s values are in alignment with ours. We are pleased to be working together to connect elders with our children, and excited about this opportunity to further serve the Halton community with innovative approaches that benefit both our youth and elder citizens. We are grateful that Silver Sherpa has selected us as their charity of choice.”
