Social engagement is essential for life and enhancing human existence.
Older adults have wisdom through life experiences, but are often ignored and neglected.
Our youth have great potential, but are often isolated and in need of mentoring.
Our elderly and young adults, particularly women, are marginalized in our society.
Reminiscing about life increases quality of life for the elder adult and promotes social engagement.
HOCHA is committed to serving the aging community by creating an enthusiastic network of volunteers dedicated to honoring the lives of the older adult and engaging with them to share experiences and life stories in an environment that is conducive to sharing, understanding and growing. HOCHA bridges the gap between the elderly and youth by connecting them through an ongoing exchange of knowledge, skills and life experiences. Capturing the stories in audio, on video, in written form will create a lasting legacy. This process is a catalyst for healing and strengthening communities nationwide.HOCHA is, at its very core, about potential and experience.
How does potential and experience come together to enrich the lives of the two largest segments of our population? Think about it: two people at the opposite ends of the age spectrum come together to exchange stories, hopes, dreams, fears and anxieties as a gift to one another. Young people can be empowered to project their futures through these conversations, and the elderly can reminisce about their own lives, and what they would tell their young self, if given a chance. This interchange is a powerful connection that can spark a change in the way our retirees are treated and the way our youth and others in society view aging. The gift of listening and sharing almost always results in kinship, increased quality of life, trust, hope, support, and…. lots of fun for all involved.
HOCHA’s cadres of energetic, passionate and dedicated volunteers facilitate this reminiscing activity, along with social networking – connecting the elderly with like-minded individuals or those who have similar backgrounds. In return, volunteers get opportunities to collect information that can be used for their educational purposes, add to their professional experience, and acquire listening and helping skills for their future careers. Volunteers can also help create memory books and recordings of interviews with the elderly, for future reference and the interest of their loved ones. With HOCHA, we strive to empower each of our volunteers by the exposure they get from reminiscing with a wise and experience community - our retirees. We foresee that this interaction will give them a realistic perspective of life, thus igniting their interest to give back to the community and come up with innovative improvements for the betterment of all.
Pablo Picasso once said, “It takes a long time to become young.” Inevitably, we’ll all age physically, but in our hearts we can remain young, joyful and full of purpose… such is the essence of HOCHA.
