Senior Citizens' Activity Group

Posted by maggie on 250 Points
Need a name for a senior citizens' activity group affiliated with a hospital. Group holds seminars on health issues, interest issues, trips for culture, education, shopping and fun.

    That last thing you want in your name is the word "senior." More than one research project indicates that "seniors" resent that label. That said, give some thought to...

    "Your Continuing Education"
    or
    "Continuing To Learn"

    Neither are tied to a specific subject(s), so they're all-inclusive. Hope that helps.

    Thanks Phil. These sound more like tag lines, though and I am looking for a group name. Also need to incorporate the fun part.

    Focus on the benefit, not on the age of your target audience. If you want to depict middle-aged people that's fine, but don't make the name a "badge" of seniors. Most seniors don't see themselves as seniors, and those who might be interested in activities probably don't feel that "senior."

    Adventures, Exploration, Camaraderie, Healthy Outings ... all of these are age-neutral. Build on them.

    You May Try These Out:
    "Second Innings"
    "Age No Bar"
    "Excitement After 60" (or what ever age you prefer)
    "Learn While You Retire" or "Learning After Retirement"
    "Senior Players"
    "Experienced Horses" (this would resemble that after certain age also you are still active)



    Thanks
    Rakesh

    Are the activities aimed toward seniors or to the general public? What does the hospital affiliation contribute to the group (is there a health-related component)?
  • Posted by maggie on Author
    Thank you very much to all who have made suggestions to this point. In answer to your questions, hospital name is Helen Keller Hospital. Activities are generally open to the public but we get to participate at group rates. The hospital contributes transportation, education and a co-ordinator who arranges our activities. (in order to be a member one must have attained the ripe old age of 55.) Please keep trying!

    This is maybe tougher than I thought. Do you think I should increase points? Please keep thinking!
