My name is Jackie. I worked for Pacific Bell for many years then retired from AT&T after the courts ordered the phone companies to diversify. While working at the phone company, I was invited to join Telephone Pioneers of America. This organization’s volunteers helped in local communities visiting the sick, playing games, crafts, singing and a long list of other activities.

I have traveled the world and experienced things that were wonderful and exciting. I have a large community of family, friends and church members that I enjoy. I am always invited to participate in various festivities.

Although, I have enjoyed many things in life, my passion is helping the elderly. I am so privileged to be a part of AgingNext that allows me to teach, inspire and encourage people who have challenges in everyday life. I enjoy what I am doing and look forward to each opportunity that I am given.

“Caring for others has spiritually enriched and blessed my life giving me real purpose and joy”.
– Jackie

Live your best life at every age...

#COVIDCANTSTOPGOOD

A public health crisis like the coronavirus can cause uncertainty and stress for people of all ages, and the isolation caused by social distancing can feel lonely. These feelings may be new for some. But for many of the older adults served by AgingNext, 78% of whom are considered low-income and 63% of whom are homebound, stress and loneliness are experienced regularly. This crisis only exacerbates those feelings.

The Importance of Kindness

Kindness is defined as the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate. Affection, gentleness, warmth, concern, and care are words that are associated with kindness. While kindness has a connotation of meaning someone is naive or weak, that is not the case. Being kind often requires courage and strength.

Volunteer Spotlight: Gale Taylor

Gale began attending the AgingNext Caregiver Support Group meetings over 17 years ago when her father was diagnosed with Leukemia. Shortly after his passing, her mother was diagnosed with vascular dementia and Gale became her caregiver. To better prepare for what lay ahead, Gale became a Certified Gerontologist.

Care Partners: Friendships that Make a Difference

James Kallsen swept Diane off her feet at the age of 15 and in just six short days, they will be celebrating 51 years of marriage. These two exemplify what it means to be a match made in heaven! James and Diane are blessed with two girls and they both do as much as they can to support their parents however, “kids come and go, they have their own lives”.
