WHAT IS IT? Lifetime Connections Without Walls is a unique telephone program providing older adults opportunities to connect with others in their community and across the country. Sessions offered include social and educational programs to friendly conversation and support groups; all over the phone and all from the comfort of home! Sessions are facilitated by volunteers and professionals. The program is run by Family Eldercare, a nonprofit agency serving older adults in Austin Texas.
HOW DOES IT WORK? The system uses a telephone conference call for sessions. The system will call you at the time of your session. All you have to do is answer your phone and press 1 to be automatically connected to your session. You may also call into the session on your own.
HOW DO I ENROLL? Please call 888.500.6472 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to register. The summer session is running now through October 2nd and you may register at any time during a term. Enrollment is open to all U.S. residents. You do not have to live in Austin, Texas to participate.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST? During the COVID-19 Pandemic, there is no cost to join!
Currently there are over 30 sessions available with widely varying topics ranging from “Coffee Talk”, “Gratitude”, “Brain Aerobics”, “Movie Chat”, “Let’s Sing! Broadway Music Favorites”, and a “Grief and Loss Support Group” to name just a few!
