Conversations To Remember

Conversations to Remember is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that combats senior loneliness by arranging virtual visits between residents in senior living communities and students in college/high school. We're looking for volunteers who will provide assistance by reaching out to participants to support the calls, either in advance of the calls or to troubleshoot problems on the visits. Conversations to Remember will provide any training/support necessary.

About Conversations To Remember

Location:

81 Windsor Drive, Pine Brook, NJ 07058, US

Mission Statement

Connecting high school and college students with residents in assisted living communities to combat the epidemic of loneliness. Putting a smile on the faces of seniors, including those experiencing cognitive decline, creating a bridge between seniors and youth.

Description

High School & College Students: Once a week 2 or 3 students engage in a video call with a senior citizen who is in an assisted living facility. Most of the residents that we are working with have some form of cognitive decline. The calls last about an hour, and we have 2 or 3 students doing it together. During the virtual visit, students don't have to be physically together, they can each be on their own device.
