A meeting place where our seniors can come and socialize with friends & our volunteers in Japanese language.
A source of daily enjoyment and socialization. A group of older adults gathers
Older adults and family members often find themselves navigating through a maze of care options. LVOC's bilingual case managers can help identify solutions that help promote independence and well- being. Case managers conduct a home visit and assess the older adult’s abilities, health, home safety and social supports. This assistance is helpful both in a crisis and for long term planning situations.
As we age, keeping up old friendships or making new acquaintances may grow more difficult. Yet having a friend to laugh with or someone to chat with about current events or sports is so important to our health and happiness. LVOC's volunteer visitors and callers are matched with an older adult who would benefit from lively conversation and companionship. Trained and screened volunteers make connections through in-person visits or phone calls.
