We have a long track record of improving Bay Area seniors' quality of life.
Engage As You Age is the preeminent social interaction service provider in Northern California. For more than a decade, we have facilitated social engagement and learning for thousands of elderly individuals.
As an auxiliary service to physical care, our social visits stimulate and enhance cognitive and social interactions while giving immediate family members some welcome respite from continuing care responsibilities.
