Communities of Elders

We would like to thank you for your commitment to caring for your loved ones and/or your residents through this challenging and unprecedented time.


We’re here to help the elders in your community stay engaged and socially active despite the necessity of physical isolation by connecting them with our volunteers over friendly phone check-ins and virtual concerts that you can enjoy as well.


Most of our current volunteers are Stanford students and affiliates, but we are expanding to include other students and community members. All volunteers are trained before becoming companions to elders through an orientation and are given guidelines for calls.


Services we offer:

  • Weekly Phone Calls (~20 min.)

  • More Frequent Phone Calls

  • Virtual Music/Dance Concerts

  • Writing Notes, Sending Pictures and/or Crafts

  • Pinterest
  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Instagram
