The world and our communities have changed immensely over the past several decades, leaving many seniors feeling isolated and uncertain. Several programs and community based efforts have been created to help seniors learn to navigate and utilize technology in order to keep in touch with loved ones and experience all that the internet has to offer.
One such program is called the Cyber Seniors Program. This program brings together high school students and seniors in an effort to teach the seniors about technology while teaching the students about the importance of friendship and caring for all generations.

According to their website, Meals on Wheels operates in virtually every community in America through their network of more than 5,000 independently-run local programs. While the diversity of each program's services and operations may vary based on the needs and resources of their communities, they are all committed to supporting their senior neighbors to live healthier and more nourished lives in their own homes.
Meals on Wheels offers home delivered meals which are available to any individual who is age 60 and over and meets the program eligibility requirements. Program eligibility is not based on income but rather on the inability to adequately prepare meals.
