We believe that senior care should not be limited to food, shelter, and healthcare.

Community connections are also a necessity.

Isolation is a growing health epidemic. 

This year, more than 3.3 million seniors will spend time in senior homes across the United States. It is estimated that nearly 60% of senior home residents never receive visitors. 

Actual and perceived social isolation are associated with increased risk for early mortality and diminished cognitive performance. The health effects of prolonged isolation are equivalent to smoking 15 cigarettes a day. 

Some of the residents are separated from their families; they are separated from their communities. It’s important that we bring the community to them as much as possible.
