Every couple, at every age, needs communication and conflict management skills.

Description of project

Close Companions will serve couples age 65+ by teaching communication and conflict management skills and by providing ongoing couple support groups. Having worked with couples for more than 45 years, we understand that Seniors face unique challenges in their lives and in their relationships. More than ever, they need to develop skills and strategies that will improve their ability to effectively discuss and make decisions about retirement, financial goals, aging, and end of life.

We will develop local partnerships with organizations that are currently serving Seniors including financial advisers, hospitals, senior centers, travel industry, etc. We will support and expand the work that they are currently doing with and for Seniors. Our goal is to serve 100 local couples in the first year through educational seminars, experiential workshops and ongoing support groups.
