About us

Mirthy is an online platform for professional public speakers, often retirees themselves, to provide online talks to older adults in the comfort of their homes.

Through our remote talks and interactive Q&A sessions, we want to connect older adults and allow them to exercise their interests and passions, wherever they’re based.

In the future, we aim to offer additional social groups and services, both online and off, to engage our community.

The Mirthy Mission

Mirthy’s mission is to help those in later life remain active, social and connected in their community.

Loneliness in later life is a huge issue, detrimental to both mental health and physical wellbeing, factors only intensified by the current COVID-19 situation.

Not only will this new approach provide a much-needed social antidote in this period of self-isolation, but will entertain and inform older adults as they partake in a community-driven online cause.
