I wanted to take a minute to tell you more about who Connectivities is right for. It may seem weird that we have a line of resources for Seniors as well as Diverse Learners, but you may be surprised at how much overlap there is with these two populations! Most of our work with Seniors is with people living
with dementia, another form of cognitive decline, or recovery from a stroke. Our work with Diverse Learners is focused on people ages 10+ who have learning, cognitive or social differences, but Connectivities activities are just plain fun really for anyone ages 7 and up.
Here, we are going to focus a bit more on how families with children ages 7 and up can benefit from Connectivities. As many of you are likely aware, there are two significant findings around loneliness, and connections with others that have been in the news a lot lately. First, the U.S. Surgeon General has recently declared isolation and loneliness as an epidemic in the U.S. Because of increased use of
technology, overuse of screens, changing family dynamics, and deep divides in beliefs we are becoming lonelier and more isolated. This has lead to a lagging in the development of critical social skills in our youth. The second major finding is that loneliness and isolation can cause a significant increase in our
risk for many health conditions such as heart disease, stroke and dementia.
One of the top recommendations to remedy this is to focus on cultivating a culture of connection! Bingo! That is what Connectivities is here to do! The activities naturally lend themselves to working together to solve problems, sharing opinions, and being creative. They set the stage for some serious connecting between whoever is working on them together! Whether you have a multigenerational
setting or between siblings we have worked hard to curate and create activities that have a little something for everyone.
As a Co-Founder and the leader of the team here at Connectivities, our mission is to create a culture of connection through fun, purposeful activities. The resources that come with each of our activities help you connect and then accomplish so much more! We hope you take the time to check out our wide selection of activities. We are adding new activities each week, so visit regularly to see what’s new! Every day we learn more and more that our tag line is so true! Life is Better When We Connect!!!
