Words to the Wise
The Area Agency on Aging of Broward County’s (AAABC) Words to the Wise is a pen pal program that invites community members to send positive, encouraging messages to Seniors experiencing feelings of loneliness, depression, and anxiety due to isolation and lack of socialization. This program helps the elderly in Broward County by fostering intergenerational friendships and providing a creative outlet for participants to express their feelings and connect to a caring person, which reinforces they are not alone. Volunteers can write to a specific senior citizen or write a generic care card to any program participant.

What is ConnectingWithU?
ConnectingWithU is a free, telephone reassurance service that provides emotional support for Seniors in Broward County. ConnectingWithU offers an individualized, emotionally safe space for Seniors to express their feelings and concerns while staying interconnected to others from the comfort of their own home. ConnectingWithU calls can prevent Seniors from feeling isolated, becoming depressed, requiring medical services, or potentially institutional placement as a result of being disconnected from human interaction and emotional instability.
