Developing A Resilient Spirit – Through Service To Others

Using his gift for storytelling, Grant Watkins will paint a picture of seniors and their needs here in our community.   He will highlight the community-based programs offered by Wilder Healthy Aging and Caregiving Services to support them, and he will share examples of ways volunteers provide comfort, care and joy for seniors, older adults and caregivers.  He will discuss current volunteer needs, opportunities and how you can sign up to make a difference.

Grant has served as manager of volunteer activities for the Wilder Center for Aging in the Selby Dale neighborhood for the past six years. Prior to joining Wilder he managed an affordable housing community for seniors.  Originally from El Paso, Texas, Grant holds a Bachelors in Communications from Metro State.   He resides in Lowertown where he is the proud parent of a nine year old rescue Maltese, named Eleanor.
