Rent a Grandparent initiative aims to tackle loneliness among elderly

Befriend a Grandparent or Rent a Grandparent is a creative way to treat senior loneliness. A lot of focus is being given - and rightly so - to protecting the elderly from COVID-19. Home care agency, Care Champ, is a big advocate for the importance of socialising for seniors. Anyone with access to a phone or computer - and, ideally, an internet connection - can sign up to be a friend or grandparent.
