Lifetime Connections Without Walls: Senior Networking on the Phone

Lifetime Connections Without Walls brings seniors together over the telephone for conversation and fun. Older adults join from the comfort of their home, using their own telephone.

Our goal is to alleviate social isolation and loneliness.  We provide social activities over the phone and bridge distances separating our older adults.  Do you know any clients, neighbors or family interested in being part of the phone community?  Anyone over the age of 55 can participate!

Volunteers and older adults cannot see each other, they sense warmth and enthusiasm through the phone, and know how much it means to them.

Volunteer without leaving your home or workplace:

  • Play Bingo in English
  • Play Bingo in Spanishfamily elder care lifetime connections without walls                      
  • Got a funny bone! Share jokes and laugh along with our seniors for 30 minutes
  • Love words, play boggle with our group
  • Teach conversational Spanish
  • Start a Book Club over the phone
  • Story time with seniors
  • Poetry workshop for seniors
  • Reminisce about home made ice cream, first jobs, first love, and so on
  • Are you a vocalist or play an instrument? Donate an evening of music to our seniors!

Our services and programs are designed to prevent abuse, neglect, self-neglect and financial exploitation of elders and adults with disabilities, prolong independent living in the least restrictive environment, and promote the health, well-being and dignity of those we serve.

Who Is Family Eldercare?

Family Eldercare is a non-profit that has been serving Central Texas since 1982. We want to ensure that all older adults receive the care they need to remain independent and living in the comfort of their own homes for as long as possible.  We support caregivers with services and education that  allow them the opportunity to have balance in their lives and to maintain good health.

Why choose a not-for-profit In-Home Care agency?

For starters we are a mission driven organization. Our focus is on serving the community and ensuring the client, the caregiver, and our employees are satisfied and receiving the highest quality service available.

Federal research shows that not-for-profit nursing homes provide higher quality to the people they serve. Consumer Reports recommends not-for-profit nursing homes over others when seeking quality care. We believe the same findings apply to in-home care when it is provided by a not-for-profit agency
