Golden Connections
The Golden Connections Program
The "Golden Connections" Program aims to bring exclusive programming geared to our retired Communities. Golden Connections offers volunteers who visit with homebound or lonely retirees at their homes, in assisted living facilities as well as at the hospital. Our mission is to bring joy and stimulation to the visitees. Our hope is to ultimately match up every retiree in need with a volunteer. 
Visitations: Many retirees living in our community, either at home, or at assisted living homes are lonely and homebound. Golden Connections matches friendly volunteers with these seniors, offering a weekly visit. These visits bring joy and cheer and can brighten the entire day, or even the whole week for these seniors. They look forward to spending quality time with someone who cares about them. Visitors can bring small gifts, shmooze, play board games, or anything else that the senior would appreciate them doing. Sometimes, the visitors feel like they gain more from the visit than the senior they are visiting

Challah Delivery Program: Many have experienced the taste of homemade Challahs growing up at their mother or grandmothers table. Often, eating Challah can evoke warm memories of growing up, and of Shabbos. Golden Connections now offers the special opportunity of delivering homemade challahs on friday afternoon to our homebound or lonely seniors. This small gesture can make a huge difference to their lives and to their Shabbat.

If you would like to volunteer to visit a senior or deliver challahs, or know of a Jewish senior who would like to  receive a visit/challah, please call 817-451-1171 or e-mail: [email protected]
