This innovative offering ensures older adults stay connected to family, friends, and community resources. Kelly discusses the details of her program, who they serve, and how the combination of companion visits and Porchlight Health technology enhances lives. Kelly also discusses rewarding volunteer opportunities with her non-profit organization.
