About

Visit a homebound senior in your area! Not only will you make a difference in their lives but you will learn so much form them!

Feelings of loneliness and isolation can lead to serious consequences for senior health. Understanding the causes and risk factors for senior isolation can help us prevent it.

Nobody relishes the prospect of aging without a spouse or family member at their side, without friends to help them laugh at the ridiculous parts and support them through the difficult times. Yet that is just what many seniors face. Many of our aging loved ones are feeling alone but you can change that by committing yourself to visit them for one hour a week!
