Family Eldercare's Lifetime Connections Without Walls program (LCWW) offers socialization, brain fitness activities and educational presentations to homebound older adults who are socially or physically isolated in the community. Older adults join in from their homes using their telephone and dialing a toll free phone number and an access code. Older adults also have the opportunity to have a volunteer facilitator connect them to the group call. Participants join in from all over the state of Texas. Volunteers can join in from home or work or come to our office to facilitate the call. The program goal is to alleviate social isolation, and loneliness among participants by providing opportunities for meaningful conversations, friendships and peer support and also empower them. For our program calendar and session catalog, please check out our website http://www.familyeldercare.org/.
