Elder Impact

Our mission is to empower seniors against ageism by making handy the information they need to keep controlling their own lives.  Our team works to incorporate market research with senior needs.  We want technology to be accessible, we want social calendars to be bustling, and we want everyone to have access to the medical attention and other resources they need.  We want younger generations to see that they can help dismantle ageism.  We donít want there to be any victims.  We want to impact the elderly so that they can keep impacting the world.
