Lifetime Connections Without Walls is a telephone activities program that provides opportunities for older adults to connect with others in their community and across the country. We offer social and educational sessions, support groups, and friendly conversation, all from the comfort of home.
For more than ten years, we have engaged with and connected older adults. Our program is more important now than ever during this time of pandemic.
“I’m really enjoying the interesting, often inspiring topics and this opportunity to learn. I’ve sensed the camaraderie and support among participants and this helps lift the ongoing feeling of isolation so many of us are feeling now. The discussions on gratitude have been comforting.” – LCWW participant
How does it work?
We use a telephone conference call system to conduct our sessions. The system will call you for the sessions you register for. All you have to do is answer your phone and you will be connected to your session. You may also call into the session on your own. All you need is a phone (cell or landline) to participate. You do not need a computer.
We create four program schedules per year (winter, spring, summer, fall). Each quarterly schedule includes about 30 sessions facilitated by volunteers and community partners.
Please contact us at (888) 500-6472 or firstname.lastname@example.org to register. You may also download our registration form below and mail, email, or call us with your registration. You may register at any time during the year. You do not have to live in Austin, Texas to participate. Enrollment is open to older adults in the U.S.
There is no cost to participate if you meet our low-income guidelines and you live in Travis or Williamson County, Texas. Otherwise, there is a small registration fee of $10 per quarterly calendar which allows you to register for unlimited sessions. **This fee will be waived during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak to make our program more accessible.**
Interested in volunteering?
From facilitating sessions to reminding participants about sessions, volunteers are a vital component of Lifetime Connections Without Walls. Best of all, you can volunteer virtually. All you need is a computer, internet connection, and phone.
“It is something easy to do from my office and I really enjoy those few minutes I have talking with those on my reminder call list. It gives me a warm feeling to know that I may have made someone’s day brighter with just a simple phone call.” – Jenny, LCWW volunteer
