PAMF linkAges Soup

 

linkAgesTM creates a social support network for all ages and across generations using the resources already in place in communities to improve the health and well-being of older adults and family caregivers.

linkAges overcomes social isolation and loneliness by rebuilding community connections, which has a direct impact on quality of life for older adults and their families.

 

time

linkAges TimeBank is a neighborhood service-exchange network that matches you with the unique skills, talents, and needs of those who live nearby. Members contribute services in exchange for hours and use those hours to receive services in return. linkAges TimeBank members develop meaningful social connections through giving and receiving help, learning new skills and sharing hobbies and interests.

 

connect

linkAges Connect uses signals in the home, such as patterns of utility usage, to provide family caregivers with updates on the wellbeing of older family members. Since variations in established routines of seniors are often an indicator of shifts in health, this can be an easy way to detect potential threats to the well-being of loved ones.
