“Mirthy helps older adults remain active, social and connected in their community.”

The Mirthy Mission

The Problem

Issues

  • The communities and services which provide for older adults are fragmented.
  • Research suggests a growing issue of loneliness and social isolation, especially in older adult populations.
  • This results in a significant social cost, both in terms of mental health and physical wellbeing.  

Our Solution

Remedies

  • We aim to bring older adults together, creating an integrated, collaborative community for those in later life.
  • We connect public speakers with retirement homes, social clubs and older adults themselves who want to listen to interesting and informative talks.
  • We offer both offline events and in response to COVID-19, a new and innovative online platform for public speakers to provide remote talks to older adults in the comfort of their own homes.
