Helpful Village is at the heart of the most critical Digital Challenge of the 21st century: A Silver Tsunami of Online Seniors.
The U.S. population is radically growing older and much of this aging is due to the baby boom generation moving into the ranks of the 65 and over population. In 15 years, the number of
Seniors will double (100% growth!) and our society urgently needs to adopt an efficient, technology-enabled, way to help Seniors that want to age autonomously in their own homes.
While all millennials and workers are daily Internet users, millions of Seniors suffer from social isolation and are not enjoying the benefits of modern technology.
Helpful Village is an online platform that is being used by thousands of Seniors across the nation and allows them to ask for help and volunteer for their neighbors for various things like replacing a lightbulb, fixing an iPad, requesting a ride for a doctor appointment or attending a Yoga class.
Each month, more Seniors start having a meaningful online presence with our Easy-to-Use, yet advanced technology. And now it is time to put your Marketing skills at work and scale our platform to millions of users nationally and internationally!
