Selfhelp’s Virtual Senior Center (VSC) offers families with isolated older loved ones an easy, friendly, and unique way to reconnect through video-based experiences.
Participants in the VSC describe a transformative experience:
- Yetta had surgery that left her unable to walk easily; she became homebound. Although she had family she could call, she felt isolated and lonely. Joining the VSC program transformed her life. She feels “alive again.”
- John had never used a computer before. Now he attends online classes, Skypes with people around the world, orders from Fresh Direct, and explores the Internet. “It’s a new world for me.”
