THE SITTING ROOM
If you're a senior and you'd like to form a community village or publish a book, cd or movie, our sister company BePublished.org will help you too. Even if you want to publish your own work by yourself, call 972-880-8316 for your free initial consultation. Have your questions written down so you can optimize your one free strategy session with "America's Best Self-Publishing Assistance Firm."
THE SITTING ROOM is an adult social club that celebrates being "senior, savvy and supreme" in 21st Century America. Catering to those aged 55+ to keep them engaged; make sure they're active; and help them age in place.
Among the ways we accomplish this grand feat is by helping seniors organize among themselves and tap into available services from organizations and businesses that already exist in their communities. We also help seniors access municipal and federal services including providing assistance completing state, federal, city and county applications for benefits. Additionally, we work with area health organizations to make accessible services including triage, massage, exercise, and vaccination services. What many love most are our 1-on-1 and group technology classes that focus on computer usage, utilizing the internet and social media safely, and using smart phones.
Because so much needs to be done that requires funds, we also work with sister organizations to pool funds, have games and events, take day trips, share knowledge, take group vacations, and meet as a group to simply have fun on a regular basis. Whether virtually or in person during a social-distancing/mask event, we do all we can to give seniors the support they need in all ways possible.
THE SITTING ROOM does not strive to be like any existing "seniors' groupp." We do, however, support seniors' clubs and organizations assisting disabled individuals by sharing information about their meet and greets, attending some of their parties, and hosting them at our venues during events thrown by existtng groups in Chicago (IL), Dallas/Fort Worth (TX), and Jackson (MS).
THE SITTING ROOM hosts an annual pageant that includes a Talent Competition and online voting. Winners receive a trophy and crown. Keep your ears and eyes tuned for a competition near you. In the meantime, feel free to participate in any of the other events that we've helped other seniors organize.
