Learn About the Issues Older Adults Face

Each week, nearly 20,000 people in the U.S. and Canada receive a text message that teaches them about a common issue older adults face – like loneliness, isolation, or mobility – and includes simple ways they can make an impact on an older adult through an act of kindness.

Connect with Aging People

When Covid-19 pushed older people into isolation, Home Instead Australia knew just what to do – connect older persons through a pen pal program. Now in the U.S. as well, the pen pal program has inspired more than 15,000 people in countries around the world to write letters to connect with lonely and isolated ageing adults.
