Virtual Connections Admission Process:

  1. Brief phone introduction and assessment for older adult, care partner, or both, to talk about Virtual Connections and answer your questions.
  2. If we determine the program may be a good fit, we schedule an admissions interview.
  3. During the admissions interview via Zoom, we will discuss your challenges, goals in attending Virtual Connections, comfort and preferences related to technology, cognitive concerns, and services and supports.
  4. If you would like to try the program, we create a personalized video meeting schedule that addresses your goals in attending the program, interests, and current cognitive
    experience.
  5. If at any time we determine that Virtual Connections would not be a good fit for you, we will continue to support you and your family by making referrals to other services, providing community resources and caregiver support.

NOTE: AGE staff has the final decision in which video meetings would be a good fit for you.
You may not be invited to attend all video meetings that are offered.

Program Cost:

The program fee is $100 per calendar month. We offer a sliding scale fee – please contact us to discuss options as we don’t want finances to be an obstacle to attending our program.
