Lifetime Connections Without Walls is a telephone-based activities program that provides opportunities for older adults to connect with others 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.”

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.

How much does it cost?

During the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, there is no cost to join. (Normally, there is a $10 fee per quarter IF you live outside Travis or Williamson County, Texas OR if you don’t meet our low-income guidelines. There is never a fee if you meet either of these criteria.) 


Interested in volunteering?

From facilitating sessions to reminding participants about sessions, volunteers are vital to Lifetime Connections Without Walls. Best of all, you can volunteer virtually. All you need is a computer, internet, and phone. Please contact us at lcww@familyeldercare.org if you’re interested. We’d love to hear from you.

“It’s something easy to do from my office and I really enjoy talking with those on my reminder call list.”
