Insightful Perspectives on Meaningful Living

With decades dedicated to empowering older adults, Dolan shared research-backed wisdom on the keys to continued health, happiness and purpose during our later years. She explained the remarkable impact that consistent participation in small but fulfilling activities can provide.

Growing older with grace, purpose and delight day-to-day is an art. With over twenty years directly serving seniors and families, Dolan understands first-hand how to optimize enjoyment and meaning across our later decades. Simple yet purposeful daily activities seem to provide exponentially positive impact. Artistic hobbies, social clubs, spending time outdoors, reading and learning new skills can dramatically enrich mental and physical wellbeing.

The Power of Daily Meaning

“I see over and over again the value of having purposeful activities, however small or simple they may be,” said Dolan. “For many seniors, enjoying familiar hobbies and interests with intention and meaning brings light to their days.”

Whether it’s sewing, woodworking, gardening, reading the newspaper or taking neighborhood walks, purposeful engagement enhances mental and physical wellness. Dolan noted that having minor goals and simple plans to anticipate contributes tremendously.
