About Us

A Intellectual Rent-a-Friend & Entertainment for Seniors

As we age and the grown kids get busy, we may find more time on our side. Thoughts turn to "Wouldn't it be nice to have someone around to talk with in and out of the home for enterainment, outings, and maybe even computer help and instruction on an occasional basis?" We work with our clients and their families by providing non-medical encouragement and comfort of meaningful social interactions & concierge services by assisting in the prevention of the long term effects of isolation. We are in the fun business. 

A recent study from the AARP found that isolated seniors have a 59% greater risk of mental and physical decline than individuals who did not experience social isolation. (Please contact us for a free copy of the comprehensive study.)
