About the Movement

Adopt a Granny is a movement that is working to assist those in nursing and old age homes. Often times, the youth today does not realize how much they can learn from those who came before them. This organization works to brighten the lives of the many lonely old individuals by pairing them with youth members in their local community. Each child or teen is given their own “grandparent” so to speak, with whom this organization hopes to spark a family-like relationship with. Whether it be becoming pen pals, weekend visitations or small meaningful gift exchanging days, Adopt a Granny hopes to motivate local communities to remember the older members of society and interact with them, creating relationships that will influence them for a lifetime to come and decreasing the loneliness in the world one step at a time. If adults can adopt children, why can’t the youth adopt grandparents!
