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.

Three in four older Americans want to stay in their homes and age in place, and technology that allows them to get help in an emergency or track their health virtually can be critical to helping them achieve that goal.

Older adults who volunteer for as little as two hours per week can substantially lower their risk of early death, become more physically active, and improve their sense of well-being compared with those who don’t volunteer according to a new study from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
There is a great saying. To be interesting, you must be interested in others. For us at e-VOLV that means expanding our brains. Learning new things. And participating in adventures. Even those outside of traditional comfort zones.
During the summer months we invite you to become a “Lifelong Learner”. You can join as an individual with just your name and email. It is free and there are no strings attached.
If you are a group, an assisted living community, Home Care Company or Council on Aging, you can join too. Again, it is free and require only a name and email account.
When you become a “Life Long Learner” you get a calendar listing of events and exceptional programs to access with a laptop, surface or other device, and an Internet connection.
Take time this summer to sit back, chill, and do some cool learning.
And when you’ve experimented with some learning, please take a few minutes to comment on your experience. We’re a new company launching a platform designed to engage seniors. Please let us know how we’re going. Use the contact button below, or email me directly: Gordon. [email protected]
All the best,
