Through the GetSetUp partnership, the Y is one step closer to closing learning gaps, promoting equity and preventing social isolation. By enabling the creation of instructional content with easy step-by-step demonstration, we can help members learn new skills and unlock new life experiences. When individuals attain the ability to master new technology, they open themselves to staying healthy, active and connected – which has always been part of the Y’s mission.
Dementia – including Alzheimer’s disease – is an emerging public health crisis. An estimated 190,000 Michiganders age 65 and over are living with Alzheimer’s. That number is expected to grow to 220,000 by 2025. Brain health is a crucial component of healthy aging and we are pleased to offer these and over 150 classes on the GetSetUp platform to older Michiganders at no cost.
This partnership will expand our ability to reduce isolation, depression, and anxiety by significantly expanding virtual programming into the homes of isolated older adults to keep them connected. This will also allow us to build more programming and classes, taught by older adults, providing them with an economic opportunity to earn money through their skills. We are thrilled to partner with The Association on Aging in New York and GetSetUp to launch this project.
