About Lifelong Learning

Feeling Valued, Loved
& Connected

Evidence suggests that the simple act of remaining engaged in the learning process throughout life has certain health benefits, especially on neurology. If our brain is not challenged with new learning, its capabilities can gradually erode over time. New evidence even shows that participation in an ongoing intellectual program can contribute to healthier brains and happier senior adults. Lifelong learning is more than a way to keep idle hands busy; it is a way to provide interaction and engagement and enable all residents to feel connected with their community.

  • Our brain needs to be challenged with new information.
  • Interaction and engagement contribute to healthier brains.
  • Improved brain health contributes to an improved quality-of-life, enhanced feelings of self-worth and a desire to experience new ideas.
  • Participants look forward to engaging socially and learning about one another.

Making a Difference

ALLE Learning provides lifelong learning classes that are presented on-site or on-campus where senior adults live or visit. Our program enables communities to implement a consistent, sustainable and highly enjoyable lifelong learning program for all residents.
  1. Engagement. Research has proven that providing opportunities for daily engagement yields happier residents.
  2. Interaction. Classes are led by staff or volunteers, not by watching a DVD but with a facilitator in a real class setting.
  3. Connection. Strong feelings of belonging and having a purpose improve quality-of-life, self-worth, and confidence.
