The effects of loneliness on the elderly can dramatically impact their quality of life. That’s why for more than 50 years, the non-profit organization Impact Broward has been working to combat these feelings of isolation, by pairing hundreds of dedicated senior volunteers with other seniors who can no longer drive or have a tough time leaving their homes. We hear how this simple act of companionship improves the quality of life for everyone involved.
