Why did you decide to become a founder?

I wanted to use my unique talents to support seniors. Becoming a founder was the most straightforward way to do it.

How did you find the problem and the solution?

I have seen in my own family, my neighbours and all around me, that people are ageing very differently. Some are living the later part of their life to the fullest, doing things that they enjoy, traveling, socialising, volunteering… While others are bored, unfulfilled, and becoming lonely and isolated. I know first hand how insidious loneliness can be, and how difficult it can be to overcome it. With Seniors Unlimited, I aim to make it easier for seniors to maintain a healthy social circle as they age, stay physically and mentally fit, and have some fun the process!
