Thirty three percent of older US adults describe themselves as chronically lonely. James Falvey is helping to change that in the Twin Cities.
James is the executive director of Little Brothers Friends of the Elderly (LBFE) Minneapolis, a non-profit that is part of a national network of volunteer-based organizations committed to relieving isolation and loneliness among the elderly.
The organization was founded by a French nobleman Armand Marquiset in 1946 after World War II. He was dedicated to serve isolated and lonely older adults who had lost their families in the war.
Today, LBFE has a chapter in nine countries throughout the world and seven in the United States.
