Our Commitments to Seniors
Little Brothers has been caring for socially-isolated seniors since 1962. No matter how they arrive at our doorstep—whether by themselves or after a referral—once they are introduced to our family, they will be a part of it for the rest of their lives.
3 Promises to Improve Quality of Life for the Elderly
Provide a presence until the end
At Little Brothers, we believe in the unique value of all humans, regardless of their condition. We also believe in the positive effects of meaningful relationships on physical and mental health. Therefore, when an isolated senior enters our large family, they will be a part of it until the end of their life.
Take action to counter social isolation
Through our actions, we reestablish social ties, allowing isolated elders to find meaning in their lives again. We empower them to share positive experiences, to make their own choices, to have dreams and to realize those dreams, to envision the future, and, especially, to find joy.
Speak up for seniors
Through our expertise and our actions, we are working to change society’s perception of the elderly. We testify to the unacceptable situations we encounter. We alert the public authorities about the need to take action. We promote civic engagement and propose new answers to long-standing problems.
