    Our mission

    To mitigate the social isolation of older adults by building a society that promotes their well-being, while enabling them to feel valued and remain socially connected.

  • How we are helping

    Providing social comfort

    Our volunteers are paired with older adults referred through their healthcare providers or coordinators. By exchanging stories over weekly calls, they steadily develop their new-found friendship.

    Training to use technology

    We are only a few screen taps away from someone. Training older adults to use modern technology empowers them to stay in touch with loved ones whenever they wish.

    Building health literacy on COVID-19

    Being the most vulnerable population, we educate older adults on COVID-19 and proper hygiene practices they can follow to minimize risk of exposure.

    Connecting with community resources

    Whether it be financial, housing, legal, recreational, religious, wellness, etc., we connect older adults with the appropriate services they are seeking.

  • How the program works

    in 4 simple steps.


    Get matched with a senior and undergraduate/medical student.

    We will match you with your student partner (undergraduate or medical) and a senior from the community.


    Complete pre-visit tasks.

    You must provide records of a flu shot and a vulnerable sector police clearance. Because the program is new, we'd love to understand how to improve it. Each volunteer is required to fill out a pre-visit questionnaire.
