Trinity Oaks receives LeadingAge Excellence in Collaboration Award
EngAGE Together program encourages intergenerational relationships
For its efforts, Trinity Oaks health and rehab received the LeadingAge North Carolina Excellence in Collaboration Award. Operated by Lutheran Services Carolinas, Trinity Oaks, joins 18 other award winners statewide who exemplify excellence in advocacy, innovation, leadership, collaboration, governance, and service in the field of aging services.
This year's awards were presented at a special lunch during LeadingAge North Carolina's Annual Conference May 8 in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
The award specifically acknowledges the EngAGE Together program, which pairs preschoolers from St. John's Child Development Center with residents of Trinity Oaks health and rehab for fun activities, whether it's playing noodleball, making crafts, dancing, or creating music together.
"The EngAGE Together partnership that Trinity Oaks has forged with St. John's Child Development Center has fostered intergenerational relationships that bring joy to everyone involved," said Lutheran Services Carolinas President Ted Goins. "We are proud of the many ways that Trinity Oaks reaches out to the community to help residents stay engaged and connected."
EngAGE Together is supported by an enhancement grant from the North Carolina Culture Change Coalition.
LeadingAge North Carolina, located in Raleigh, is an association of nonprofit providers of aging services. The association has 69 nonprofit member communities statewide that include continuing care retirement communities/
