ALYCE Care started out as a home care agency for seniors, specializing in companionship. We recognized early on that senior isolation and loneliness were reaching epidemic proportions, with an increasing number now living alone at home. Some studies even show that when seniors live communally, they can add 10 to 15 quality years to their lives!
However, we began to realize that the need for companionship did not end when a session with a caregiver was over, and it is difficult for most seniors to pay $25/hour for full time companion-care!
That's when the concept of ALYCEMATES was born! By matching college students, recent graduates, and young adults with seniors as roommates, we could solve two very pressing problems: senior isolation and the student debt & housing crisis.
With ALYCE, seniors don't have to live alone, they can be a mentor and teacher, and share their wisdom and stories. For students, not only can they take pressure off of their pocketbooks, they can help seniors stay connected and be an emergency contact, if needed.
All of our seniors and students are thoroughly vetted and get to know each other before any arrangements are made. ALYCE goes above and beyond to make sure that ALYCEMATES are paired to perfection!
