Family & Wellness
Seniors must take care to enjoy each morning coffee with a healthy dose of exercise, and mindfulness.
We Are One Elders hosts a daily exercise program for Seniors to ensure their top performance throughout each day.
The majority of entrepreneurs are middle-aged or approaching 65.
With more and more people hitting what was once considered “retirement age,” it’s impractical for cities and communities to count on young people alone to act as economic drivers.
By 2022, it’s estimated that around 31.9% of people between the ages of 65 and 74 will remain in the workplace—as opposed to 20.4% in 2002.
"Great things are accomplished when a series of small things come together."
We Are One Southeast Chicago is a not for profit organization that focuses on the health, welfare, and care of seniors. Our volunteers are energetic seniors who are strong advocates for Elders who want to stay in their homes and age with dignity.
Our primary purpose is to support senior Americans by providing information on health care, health insurance and services that enhance the quality of life.
Join us at one of our upcoming events or activities.
Be a part of the celebration of elders!
