Senior Correspondent Partners with North Carolina Senior Living Community
Raleigh, N.C., April 25, 2017 — Senior Correspondent, a digital news venture that shares the stories of older adults, has formed a partnership with Galloway Ridge, a senior living community in Pittsboro, N.C.
Working with Senior Correspondent, Galloway Ridge residents explore life experiences by crafting essays and poetry. The Raleigh-based venture publishes those writings across its award-winning website and mobile app and engages readers of all ages through its social media channels.
The partnership gives Galloway Ridge a community landing page (/galloway-ridge) on the Senior Correspondent website, professional editing and social media promotion. Residents experience the sense of purpose that comes with reporting on their lives, while making intergenerational connections through an extensive online community.
“Galloway Ridge enriches the lives of residents in all we do,” says Executive Director Bob Zimmer. “This partnership capitalizes on that philosophy by providing a platform for residents to explore their creativity and find purpose.”
Launched in 2010 by Raleigh-based communications firm Signal Hill, Senior Correspondent features the reporting of veteran journalists alongside personal essays, commentary and poetry contributed by older adults, many of whom live in retirement communities.
Senior Correspondent’s aim is to create a fuller picture of contemporary issues and historic moments by providing context and personal perspective — “a seasoned view of the world,” as the media venture puts it. Grounded in the latest research on successful aging and life review, Senior Correspondent enhances the well-being of older adults through the power of narrative.
“Being the first community of its kind in the area, Galloway Ridge is no stranger to innovation,” says Senior Correspondent founder Daniel Pryfogle. “This partnership takes community programming to the next level, providing a unique opportunity for lifelong learning and connection with other writers and readers.”
