Kindness and wisdom were shared in abundance at Week 3 of the STEP (Seniors and Teens Empathy Program) at Bupa Australia aged care, Queens Park. Spending time talking with an elderly woman, one of the teens commented “She had an amazing amount of resilience for what she had been through in her life”.
STEP is an exciting initiative of Heart and Soul Story, developed and coordinated by psychosocial facilitator Sam Heron. Kids Giving Back is pleased to be a project partner connecting kids with the elderly.
Storytelling, rites of passage, and inter-generational connection all drive this special project. Read more here: https://heartandsoulstory.com/
