Lifetime Connections Without Walls

Lifetime Connections Without Walls is a telephone activities program that provides opportunities for 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 from the comfort of home. We are a program of Family Eldercare, a nonprofit agency serving older adults and adults with disabilities in Austin, Texas. 

How does it work? 

They use a telephone conference system to conduct the sessions. The system will automatically call you for the sessions you register for. All you need is a phone to participate.  They create four program schedules per year (winter, spring, summer, fall). Each quarterly schedule includes about 30 sessions facilitated by volunteers and community partners. There is no cost to participate in you have limited income and live in Travis or Williamson County, Texas. Otherwise, there is a small registration fee of $10 per quarter which allows you to register for unlimited sessions. **This fee will be waived during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak to make our program more accessible.**
