Our story

A Friend For Mom comes from our founders passion and love for the time they got to spend with their grandparents growing up. As early as grade school they can remember once a month being picked up from school to go spend the afternoon with grandma and the bridge card club. Setting up tea and coffee, cookies and card tables, and just spending time enjoying everyone's company.

When figuring out how to create a company that can help the most people, bring the most joy and create a positive impact on the world it took some time, but A Friend For Mom is the answer. Engaging our members while aging gracefully by building a bridge for the generational gap, providing opportunities for engaging exchange and thoughtful conversation.
