Elder Community Care
Elder Community Care's TeleConnect program serves older adults who are isolated or who are struggling with anxiety, depression, or a new life situation. Volunteer befrienders and a TeleConnect recipient explain how it works.
Elder Community Care can help you!
Mental health problems in older adults are underreported, under-recognized, & under-treated.
Untreated mental health conditions can lead to disability, premature and innapropriate nursing home placement, and suicide.
Mental health problems are often preventable and are highly treatable.

The Latest from Elder Community Care
Did you know?
In the next 20 years the number of elderly drivers (persons 70 & over) is predicted to triple in the United States. As age increases, older drivers
generally become more conservative on the road. Many mature drivers modify their driving habits
(for instance to avoid busy highways or night-time driving) to match their declining capabilities.
However, statistics show that older drivers are more likely than younger ones to be involved in multi-vehicle crashes, particularly at intersections.
