Description

Promote Quality of Life Across Generations through Technology, Building Community and Encouraging Intergenerational Exchange

LinkingAges opens an affordable and compelling window to the world through the Internet for isolated older adults in communal settings. Family ties and friendships are cultivated as participants explore the Internet together. Lifelong learning enables them to pursue interests and hobbies, promoting cognitive stimulation and confirming that vibrant minds and social networks are the key to thriving communities. Oral history projects across generations provide elders the chance to share their stories with youngsters, enhancing socialization and learning across life's continuum.

Our LinkingAges Academy and Touching Lives initiatives provide opportunities for our elders to reconnect with their extended social networks. In a highly mobile, transient society, the Internet, properly introduced and facilitated, brings elders to the world, and the world to elders.
