Friendly Visitor Program

Loneliness is an all too familiar feeling for many seniors in Ocala. Those who see no one from month and month can suffer from depression, physical illness, and mental illness.

All it takes is an hour a week of your time to share stories, photos, and smiles with a new friend!

Do you know a friend or acquaintance who would enjoy a weekly visit from a neighbor?

Please, contact the Foundation by email at SRFofOcala@gmail.com to make your suggestions.

Senior/Student Lunch Program

Many seniors in Ocala have grandchildren who live far away in other states. Other seniors would enjoy the challenge of learning about the world through a young person’s eyes. College students would benefit from learning from those who are in experience and have lived full lives.

The senior/student lunch program would bring these two worlds together and broaden the growth of each.

Intergenerational lunches will encourage conversation between seniors and college students. The activity is conducted by student volunteers.
