Supporting Older Adults Remotely (SOAR) is designed to address the whole health of older adults in the community by improving resilience, hope, optimism, cognitive ability, and physical and mental health-related quality of life through evidence-based practices. SOAR consists of education on older adult mental health and normal age-related changes, older adult peer support, technology training, life review, mindfulness, and tools to help with cognitive challenges around memory, reasoning, and information-handling. After completing the three 4-hour training sessions, you will be ready to deliver SOAR to older adult service users. Using a technology of their choice (video conferencing; phone; etc.) you will engage service users through 12 weekly sessions. The curriculum will guide you through collaborative goal setting, video instructions, interactive storyboards, role-play prompts, and peer-led videos.
