Who We Are
We are an interdisciplinary team of students, experts, practitioners, and older adults using our skills and experiences to connect our communities.
What We Do
We are building trusted channels for older adults, organizations, businesses, and municipalities to find each other and thrive as a unified community.
On behalf of older adults today and tomorrow.
Our mission is to make communities accessible for an aging population.
A future of connected communities.
Our vision is a future where getting older never impacts our relationship with our communities.
A unified front of progress.
Our dream is a future of innovation that is equitable, where progress is made as a unified community without leaving anyone behind.
We are committed to staying at the forefront of progress so that we can continuously explore, adapt, and harness new ways to improve communities.
We want to understand the unique challenges faced by older adults so we can strive to create solutions that meet their needs and enhance their quality of life.
We value accessibility and believe that technology, experience, and communities should be inclusive and accessible to people of all ages and abilities.
We believe in working closely with our users, customers, and partners to create solutions that meet their specific needs and address the challenges they face.
Meet the Team
"It stunned me how difficult it was to find resources and how few tools were made for older adults."
"I hope one day we can create a service that is accessible to anyone and everyone who wants to participate."
"I noticed my family and neighbors struggling with isolation and it motivated me to pursue a solution within a field I know best."
"I saw the devastation that the COVID-19 pandemic had on isolation especially for older adults who were high risk, and it inspired me to create something with this idea.”
