New ADRC program combats loneliness

In efforts to foster positive, meaningful relationships and help people feel less lonely, a local organization is forming an “Adopt-A-Grandparent Program”.  The new program for 2021 is being facilitated by the Aging and Disability Resource Center of Door County with hopes to match people who have similar interests across all generations.  Activity Volunteer Coordinator Nicki Scharrig says the program encourages participants to get to know each other via phone, video chat, virtual games, or old fashioned handwritten letters.  She says the idea has already been well-received by area schools.

 

 

Sharrig adds the “Adopt-A-Grandparent” would run for one year and only require a weekly commitment of one to two hours.  Interested individuals can contact the ADRC directly to participate or go online and register at www.surveymonkey.com/r/XG8VCNC
