"Feeling Lonely? Try Connecting with a Kid!"
So goes the advice from the November issue of the AARP Bulletin which highlighted the intergenerational connections made through programs like DOROT's Caring Calls.
Caring Calls matches seniors and volunteers for weekly calls over eight weeks, and in many cases that initial commitment is just a beginning! You can learn more about volunteering through Caring Calls here and participating as an older adult here.
