Program Description


“What started as a local campaign to encourage companionship within our homes, has now became a global initiative to help combat loneliness amongst the elderly.”
-facebook.com/AdoptAGrandp/

“…the idea behind this which we launched last October was really about relieving isolation and loneliness and intergeneration communication.”

-Shaleeza Hasham -CHD Living.


“The success of this campaign has been monumental (nearly 90,000 people have signed up globally) and has transformed the lives of so many people. For this, we thank each and every one of you - and we look forward to the exciting future of Adopt a Grandparent.”
