Exploring Passions

43% of seniors report feeling lonely and 59% of those are more likely to decline in their ability to perform activities of daily living. At Family Tree, we offer a unique service aimed at solving the isolation problem with seniors and giving every senior a chance to find purpose in connection. Family Tree offers carefully matched friendly and highly educated companions that connect with older adults in various meaningful ways. All of our companions are either students or graduates of institutions of higher learning, and all are passionate about giving back to and learn from an older generation they admire. At Family Tree, our matching ensures social companions share expertise and interests with their clients such as engineering, gardening, sports, fashion, interior design, and more.

Social Outings

From a trip to the museum to a weekly lunch outing, out highly educated and engaging social companions cover lots of ground. We match our social companions with older adults based on interests and follow up to ensure we’ve made a quality match. Our social companions are passionate about socializing with aging adults and engaging in spirited, friendly, and meaningful conversations and outings wherever our clients wish to go.

Reinforcing Memories

Why are Social Companions So Important?

Social isolation has been associated with aging adults developing chronic illnesses and increasing their risk of death. Hypertension, decreased physical activity and mobility, and increased depression has been tied to loneliness and isolation. Commonly, cognitive abilities can suffer as well. Additionally, research has shown that cognitive decline and dementia may become more likely with isolation.
