In 2018, the U.S. Census Bureau reported that by 2035 there will be 78 million people 65 years and older compared to 76.4 million under the age of 18, marking an important demographic turning point. In Long Beach a city in Los Angeles county, 11.7% of its population is 65 years and older, and adding to this, by 2025 22% of Long Beach’s senior citizens will be living below the poverty line (US Census Bureau, 2018). TimeLinks US aims to help and support these people in a holistic way by providing services that go beyond clinical care. Specifically, we aim to provide in-home support to seniors with daily chores, picking up medicines, buying groceries or just keeping companionship in the face of growing prevalence’s of Alzheimer's and Dementia. Our mission is to promote giving and receiving of services through time banking credits that will help support families, neighborhoods and the community by empowering seniors. Time credits/dollar is something that TimeLinks US will use to exchange services with other members, save it for future needs or they can also be donated to other members who cannot earn their own Time credits. We believe that no one should have to feel helpless and alone in this crowded world by building strength, support, trust and creating networks in the community. This proposal will give a detailed overview on how we shall achieve those.
