THE AGEUP TASKFORCE A taskforce consisting of Bayview staff, residents and community members was formed to create and implement a “big vision” at Bayview and far beyond its walls. Our vision is to eradicate ageism and related forms of prejudice by changing perceptions of aging in the general public and among seniors themselves, thus empowering our elders to live more vibrant lives, to attain a more valued, equitable, integrated position in society, to be role models and to benefit society more fully in the aging process, and to improve health outcomes for ourselves and the people we serve.

MARYLEE, RESIDENT & AGEUP COMMITTEE MEMBER As a resident of Bayview, I feel privileged to be included in the positive AgeUp Task Force. The Staff at Bayview continually respects, listens and involves residents in the running of our Community. That involvement makes me feel like I am still necessary and important. I really like to be aware of what is going on, and through AgeUp and other programs, I feel the staff wants to know my opinion. Reflecting and speaking on our positive, elder, community's future, Bayview is holding a safe, communal space where I can be heard and where I am a responsible member of a civic society. Enjoying our laughter together and through that, the healing that goes on in our projects, I feel seen and honored and I cannot ask for more than that.

A MUST-SEE: "SUPERHEROES OF BAYVIEW" Have you seen our latest resident film, "Superheroes of Bayview?" Through Bayview films, residents are able to weave together themes of positive aging and embrace the very essence of #AgeUp. "Superheroes of Bayview" was an official selection of the Creatively Connected online film festival sponsored by The Foundation for Art & Healing and Lion’s Gate Films.
