Welcome! By using the Senior Link Web App, website, and other services provided by the Senior Link Project, ("Senior Link" or “The Project”), you agree with the terms and conditions described below.
The motivation for Senior Link started in the pandemic of 2020 when more seniors were isolated. The main idea was to facilitate the creation of volunteer groups to connect with seniors in the community and help to reduce their social isolation. This process starts with a Coordinator who creates a Senior Link group, enters the names of Seniors in the community who agreed to participate, and invites Volunteers who are willing and able to contact Seniors. Coordinators are expected to vet both Seniors and Volunteers before inclusion in the group and assign an appropriate Volunteer to each Senior. Each Volunteer should agree to call the assigned Senior over the phone and have a good conversation on a regular basis. Seniors may report some needs to the Volunteer, which will be conveyed to the Coordinator for resolution. The phone calls between the Volunteers and Seniors may be beneficial for both Seniors and Volunteers, open the possibility for new relationships in the community, and help to ameliorate social isolation.
Senior Link does not monitor any group or content. Groups are managed by their Coordinators without monitoring by Senior Link. Coordinators must obtain consent from Volunteers and Seniors before including them in their groups. Participants must obtain permission from Coordinators to participate in groups. The Senior Link Project does not monitor, neither participate in this process.
