Frequently Asked Questions
Senior Community Connections is a grassroots, 501(c)3 nonprofit launching in 2017 to provide services, activities, and programs that members want to live more safely, more confidently, and more independently in their homes and neighborhoods. We provide aging in place services to empower and enrich the lives of the local and older population.
Transportation: round-trip rides to appointments, shopping and events provided by a vetted volunteer.
Household assistance: volunteer help with simple handyman tasks, snow removal, light garden or cleaning chores; other non-medical services as requested.
Fun activities: social events, interest groups, exercise classes, coffee dates or meals out, etc., planned by members, for members! Some activities, such as concerts or classes, require direct payment by members.
Technology coaching: assistance with learning or operating computers, cell phones, pads, and other devices.
Office support: organizing an office, home or collection.
Personal services: check-in phone calls, house-sitting, pet care.
Information and referral: one-call access (online or phone) to a knowledgeable “concierge” who can connect you to the resource you need.
We attend concerts and lectures, form groups to pursue common interests or exercise, meet for coffee or meals, and toast our good fortune at happy hours. Social events are planned by members for members.
