Louise Quartuccio, Director of Social Work at Elant, a nursing facility that provides housing for seniors, and Roger Risko, Rotary District 7210’s Elderact Chair, discuss Elderact, a Rotary-connected club for senior citizens similar to Rotaract for young adults and Interact for high-school students. The Elderact club is an example of how society benefits from humanitarian efforts by its senior citizens. The span of knowledge and skills among seniors is often overlooked but are clearly recognized when seniors implement important work in their local community and beyond, such as Elant’s humanitarian projects that support the military, battered women’s shelters, students, local animal shelters, and the needy. The Elderact model is currently being expanded to other senior facilities in District 7210.
