The CircleTalk Philosophy

Fighting the loneliness epidemic.

CircleTalk was created to address the need to disrupt loneliness and isolation in the lives of older adults. Our solution is a turn key program that trains facilitators in the CircleTalk ™ method and curriculum. This allows organizations to provide thoughtful social engagement programming in any setting where older adults gather.

CircleTalk programs directly support those providing life enrichment programs with a vibrant engagement tool that is easy to integrate into existing programming.

Bring us to residential communities and anywhere older adults gather.
