"Being recently semi-reitred, I have found that having too much free time can be boring! So, I thought giving a little bit of my time back to the community would not only be therapeutic for me, but also useful to those who could benefit fro my wonderful driving skills!!"

Larry Pollard

"As an adult child who cared for an aging parent with dementia over an extended period of time, I have a deep appreciation for the value that REAL Connections bring to our older adults and their families. My father has since passed away but as a volunteer, it truly fills my heart with joy and satisfaction to see our older adults participate in and enjoy life instead of being isolated and/or a shut-in. In addition the support and community resources REAL Connections provides family members and those caring for an aging parent, family member, or loved one are invaluable."

Pam Bergman-Swartz

"It is a wonderful experience to be involved with REAL Connections since its earliest beginnings. It is an honor to volunteer for seniors in our community as well as meet other volunteers dedicated to the REAL Connections mission and the villages concept."
