Lifetime Connections Without Walls is a telephone program that provides opportunities for isolated 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 over the phone – all from the comfort of home.
“In a world of confusion, loneliness, and isolation, I found you. My life has changed dramatically. I am out of the scary dark and into the light of life.” LCWW participant
How does it work?
We use a telephone conference call system to conduct our sessions. The system will call you at the time of your session. All you have to do is answer your phone and you will be automatically connected to your session. You may also call into the session on your own.
We create four program schedules per year (winter, spring, summer, fall). Each quarterly schedule lasts about 13 weeks and includes 25-30 sessions facilitated by volunteers and professionals.
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.
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
