The Third Act – Joy and Excitement in the Later Years – June 15, 4-5:15 PM

Wondering what you will do after retirement? Reflecting on your life and thinking, what’s next? Considering pursuing a new passion, career, or life change? Wanting to figure out your next phase?

These are questions many ask as they move into a part of their life termed “The Third Act.” Please join NEST to hear from experts and people with experience in redefining their lives during the Third Act, for a free, enlightening discussion, and an opportunity to also learn about NEST.   You won’t want to miss this opportunity – and some fun prizes!

The Third Act: Joy and Excitement in the Later Years will explore the psychological process of “what is the next phase” and provide tools to individuals as they enter this next phase. The program will feature a keynote presentation by Patricia Cavanaugh, a licensed psychotherapist and retirement coach who assists people in planning for their Third Act. You will also hear from a panel of community and NEST members on what their Third Act has looked like and learn how NEST is supporting people in their Third Act.

Who Benefits from a NEST Membership?

NEST has both Full Access memberships and NEST Builder memberships. Full Access members have a wide range of services at their disposal; everything from volunteer drivers to help them get to medical appointments, to a list of certified and vetted vendors to help with anything our volunteers can’t do. They also have access to our wide range of activities each month to help keep them active and engaged – even during the pandemic.

NEST Builders are members who primarily benefit from NEST’s social engagement opportunities. During the pandemic, it has become even harder to strengthen social connections and create lasting relationships. That’s where NEST can help. We provide many opportunities each month for our members to come together (virtually and occasionally in person following proper social distancing guidelines) and practice Qigong or Feldenkrais, play PickleBall, or discuss scientific topics or poetry together.

If you know someone who might benefit from one of these two modes of engagement, don’t wait! Contact them today.


We believe that our community is our strongest asset. We all work together to ensure that older adults in NE Seattle can be independent, connected, and age safely in the home of their choosing. By creating a close-knit, hyper-local, inter-generational community, we are investing in the future of the entire NE Seattle area – and so are you!

We are here to support our members no matter what challenges they face because we believe in one simple idea: no one should have to grow older alone.

Do you have an idea for a new group or event? We would love to help! All of our programming is created by our community and we are always looking for new ways to engage our members.
