Welcome

Welcome to e-VOLV Senior Connections. We’re delivering streaming programming and activities into the homes of seniors through the tablets and devices they’re already using. Our goal: to help seniors make connections they can use to build bridges over loneliness and isolation; broaden their horizons; and enlarge their lives.

November is National Caregivers Month

During the month of October e-VOLV Senior Connections will highlight at least one interesting and engaging program covering the topic of Caregiving and our valuable Caregivers.

Connectors Corner

 

With the change of seasons, we need to remind each other to check on our senior friends and neighbors who might be more reluctant to step outside and engage in the world around them. Especially on a rainy day! Or frankly, a day when they don’t want to get out of their jammies!!

Of course, this is exactly why we created the e-VOLV platform! So, they wouldn’t have to!

In recent months we’ve expanded our curated content in significant ways. On our medical and health pages we invite you to engage in low impact exercises to keep the blood flowing and the brain clicking. And of course, we always encourage seniors to become “Lifelong Learners” by joining up to get a calendar listing of free events and programs on their laptops and other devices.

If you are a group, an assisted living community, Home Care Company or Council on Aging, you can join too. All it requires is a name and email account.

In our new “Dementia Journey” page, we’re presenting experts and expertise on this topic which we know is important to thousands of seniors and family caregivers in our communities. Digging deeper into the content, you’’ll gain access to tons of information and practical advice from reliable sources. From podcasts, to YouTube videos, interviews, links to websites and book recommendations. We will continue to expand this section and hope you will visit it often.

With the mid-term elections behind us, it feels like we should take a break from politics and take pleasure in being with the seniors in our lives. Exploring the content on e-VOLV with a loved one makes for a great afternoon!

We’re still a young company launching a platform designed to engage seniors. Please let us know how we’re doing. Use the contact button below, or email me directly: Gordon. [email protected]

All the best,

Gordon Szerlip, Chief Connector,
