Is a Big Deal

50% Nursing Home Residents

Studies show that approximately 20 percent of nursing home residents have major depression (about 350,000 people in the U.S.), and an additional 30 percent have significant depressive symptoms.

Environmental Isolation

Depression among nursing home residents is largely caused by the lack of social interacting and environmental isolation. Nursing home residents, like all other people, need this interaction to maintain a healthy life style.

Reversal of Depression

Out of the residents who got this social interaction, more than half saw a complete reversal of their depression. Anticipation of the time spent during these social interactions is also a factor in fighting against depression.

What Drives Us

Our Mission

Our mission is to visit, cherish, and celebrate the elderly in our community, especially those residing in nursing homes or assisted living facilities. Our vision recognizes and honors the life and value of the elderly in our society and provides them with love and affection with no strings attached.
