EXPERIENCE UNITED WE AGE
Together We Can Make A Difference
Welcome to United We Age. We are a 501 (c)(3), nonprofit, volunteer driven organization based in Florida. Our mission is to assure social support for senior citizens facing challenges due to aging, and to assist them with communications technology to improve their quality of life.
The 65+ population in the U.S. is poised to grow to over 70 million from 40 million over the next several decades. Quality of life and life expectancy suffers tremendously for older people and people stricken with life-threatening disease living alone and/or lacking social support. These seniors are more likely to experience diminished self-worth, anxiety, depression, societal isolation, lower quality of life, and shorter life expectancy.
Our Friends for Seniors program offers seniors in need, social support. The program allows us to bring a personal touch to seniors by directly providing them with some outside friendly contact as well las birthday and holiday cards and gifts.
Our Stay in Touch program offers voice-activated technology devices and installation from our volunteers, featuring Amazon’s Echo Show, to the senior population. The program offers older adults a window into how technology can enrich their lives, providing them the opportunity to communicate from their place of residency and/or care facility. Together with our partner, Speak2, our goal is for America’s senior population to join the technology revolution by assuring that every aging adult has access to the internet through voice-activated technology devices like Alexa.
Your financial support will help us reach out to thousands of financially and/or health challenged senior citizens who lack an adequate social support network. Quality of life and even life expectancy suffers tremendously for older people lacking adequate social support.
Please join the United We Age family and receive the latest news on our activities, blogs, podcasts and so on. Volunteers and donations are always welcome and are the fuel that helps us help seniors maintain a joyful quality of life in their twilight years.
