About

It is no secret that friendships bring us joy. For elderly individuals, you can make a real difference in their lives. Typically, later in life, one loses those who are close, spouses, friends, relative and even sometimes childen. This can feel very lonely and create depression. When you take an interest in an elderly person, it can lift them to new heights and give them a renewed sense of purpose.

You will be talking with them about many subjects, discussing memories of the past, and sharing experiences. You can take a walk or share a snack.
