CARP Halton Chapter & Silver Sherpa Inc. cordially invite you & your family
to attend a FREE entertaining and informational film!
A documentary and social impact campaign connecting youth and seniors
Silver Sherpa Inc. is a life transitions company offering professional planning, coordination and navigation services to seniors and their families. Their trusted advisors bring order out of turmoil and simplify those important and sometimes difficult life transitions due to health issues or loss of a partner.
Part of Silver Sherpa’s core philosophy is to promote intergenerational programs and to give back to the communities where they do business. That is why the Company President Susan Hyatt made the decision to work with Cyber Seniors and to participate in “connecting generations” campaigns connecting youth and seniors through technology. It is also the reason Silver Sherpa approached CARP Halton Chapter with the offer to co-sponsor a special showing of Cyber- Seniors in Halton.
CARP Halton Chapter is pleased to co-sponsor this event with Silver Sherpa as we fully recognize the synergy with our Chapter’s Vision & Mission Statement:
Vision: A society in which everyone can live active, independent, purposeful lives as they age.
Mission: CARP is committed to enhancing the quality of life for all Canadians as we age.

Following the show, young adults from local Rotaract Clubs will be on hand to demonstrate technology examples show-cased in the film. And…bring your portable devices with you if you have some quick questions you’d like answers to.

ABOUT THE FILM
Directed by Toronto’s Saffron Cassaday, this humorous and heart-warming feature documentary follows the story of a pioneering group of cyber-seniors as they discover the wonders of the world-wide-web with the help of teenage mentors.
“Cyber-Seniors is a powerful example of the opportunities that emerge when generational gaps are bridged, and when new ways of connecting are explored”, says Cyber-Seniors director Saffron Cassaday.
