Message to All:
Our office during this health crisis will be closed, all staff will be working regular office hours remotely to ensure we are meeting the needs of our elder friends.

 Message to all Volunteers:
Out of an abundance of caution surrounding the COVID-19 situation, and information from public health officials, we have temporarily stopped all visits to elders until further notice. This includes Visiting Companion visits, Friendship, and Flowers visits and any participation in all elder activities until further notice.

We are urging all Visiting Companions to call their Elder Friends on a regular basis.

Message to our Supporters:
Due to the uncertainty surrounding community transmission of COVID-19, we have decided to cancel our annual Not Alone Breakfast fundraiser scheduled for March 19, 2020.  The precautions necessary to prevent the spread are compounding elder isolation, leaving thousands more without meaningful social contact for unknown periods of time. As we rethink our programs and approach, we urgently need your support, please take action now.

Thank You!

We will continue to monitor the situation and inform you of event opportunities in the future.

Solo Seniors part 2
Guest Speaker: Marsha Berry
Projections are that by 2030, one in five individuals will be 65 or older. Part of that demographic includes “senior solos”—individuals who, by choice or circumstance, are single. Central to the lives of all senior solos is how to navigate the healthcare system without the traditional family support system with which the healthcare system presumes healthcare decision-making process is conducted. This discussion will continue one begun in October 2019, with a look at core elements of a backup plan for personal health and well-being and other tools to help solos plan for themselves.
