Provide monthly opportunities for elders and volunteers to gather for socialization, recreation and good food.
Volunteers and staff provide to vulnerable elders services (free of any charges) not provided by other organizations, while offering essential social support.
Volunteers and staff maintain frequent contact with frail elders to reassure them and check on their well being via telephone calls.
We mark Thanksgiving Day, Chanukah & Christmas Day, and Passover. Volunteers provide companionship while delivering nutritious holiday meals, and provide transportation for those elderly friends able to attend holiday celebrations.
Volunteers and staff advocate on behalf of their elder friends, helping them to secure needed services that Little Brothers-Friends of the Elderly does not provide but the elders are in need of.
