Adopt a Grandparent/Elder (AGE)

Connecting community-Bridging the Generational Divide

A free not- for-profit service matching volunteers of all ages for mutual benefit

Skills to teach (chess bridge knitting calligraphy cursive writing)

Mentoring, experience, and knowledge to share

Adopt a Grandparent/Elder is a service in Fredericton which attempts to address the generational divide and the need for a more caring community through volunteerism. Those who may have lost a loved one or have a smallish family/ friend base but have room in their lives and hearts for an expanded extended family are matched with others of different generations for their mutual benefit. 

Due to physical distancing constraints, interactions are in the form of sharing....through calls, letters, and emails as well as small support services, deliveries, chores, and errands.  In-person interactions may be possible in the future.

Some volunteer on an occasional basis when there is an immediate need or when they have some free time. Others establish long-lasting bonds. 

Let’s start in 2021 with new connections and the gratification that comes from giving back. This is a free not for profit service ...no strings attached.
