Community Connections is an innovative volunteer driver program that provides a door-through-door assisted transportation service to seniors and individuals with disabilities who cannot easily use other transportation programs.

Inspired by the Beacon Hill Village grassroots aging-in-place program started in Boston more than a decade ago, the program’s basic idea is that people want to remain in their homes and communities as they grow older. REAL Connections is designed to make life less complicated and more fulfilling. Neighbors helping neighbors, meaningful volunteer and social involvement, opportunities to optimize health and wellness, members- only discounted services, and so much more. As a REAL Connections member, living and aging well can be greatly enhanced by connecting with neighbors and being able to access a network of trusted resources, information and service providers—all with one phone call or email.

Senior Companion

Senior men relaxing in armchairsThe Senior Companion Program recruits active, fixed income seniors to assist other seniors in their homes.

The goals of the program are two-fold:
(1) to help seniors live as independently as possible.
(2) to provide fixed income seniors with a meaningful service opportunity and a modest source of income.

Senior Companion volunteers assist with activities of daily living such as shopping, preparing meals, running errands, and providing companionship to alleviate the loneliness that so many homebound seniors experience.
