Hospitality at Home is the flagship program of St. Alexius Outreach Ministries, Inc., the newest ministry of the Alexian Brothers. Creating connection for lonely, isolated older adults is at the heart of what we do. We are sustained by our dedicated volunteers, committed support staff, and the presence and service of the Alexian Brothers. We strive to carry on the Alexian Brothers' defining values of compassion, dignity of the person, care of the poor, holism, and partnership. Our mission is to alleviate isolation and loneliness through friendship and supportive services.
Isolation and loneliness are growing crises within the ever-increasing older adult population. These factors impact seniors' overall well-being by affecting physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health while also increasing susceptibility to abuse. We serve older adults (70+) living alone by offering ongoing friendship and supportive services to alleviate these risk factors while bringing hope and reassurance. While our focus is on serving older adults, as many as 1 in 5 Americans experience loneliness and we believe that this ministry can address loneliness for people of all ages through volunteerism and friendship.
