Community

The Center works to support the needs of older adults, their caregivers, and the agencies that support them.  If you are a community member or if you work for an agency that supports older adults and would like more information on Center, please contact us.

The Center for Social Gerontology at Georgia Southern University seeks “to make a positive difference in the lives of aging persons and their families and communities through increasing awareness of as well as fostering and supporting the needs and activities of a diverse older adult population at multiple levels.”

To that end we offer the following information regarding resources in the community:

CALL 2 CARE

Call2care was created to create meaningful intergenerational social relationships between older adults and students as a way of overcoming ageism and social isolation.

We are seeking older adults and Georgia Southern University students to participate bi-weekly, 20-minute phone conversations

Students are trained and complete a criminal background check.

For more information about Call2Care, please contact us at call2care@georgiasouthern.edu  or 912-478-8546.

The Call2Care is led by a team of Georgia Southern University Faculty and Staff.
