Walking is a low-impact universal activity that has been proven to aid with better health. It increases circulation, manages heart disease, & improves balance which means fewer falls & less hospitalizations!
At Walk With Pop, we care about the entire spectrum of health, especially emotional & social wellness.
We are confronting chronic health conditions with companionship, providing accountability and safety with novelty.
Walk With Pop is rooted in the power of community and connection to heal isolation and loneliness. Older adults are paired with vetted, and trained companions to walk and talk together in the comfort of their neighborhood.
Your safety is first and foremost. We take it very seriously. Every Companion must pass a detailed and vetted application process before they are hired. We train all qualified Companions on safety measures when working with older adults, and are insured. If there is ever a problem, our support team is on standby.
We understand the varying levels of mobility when it comes to natural aging. Our platform is available to all adults regardless of their ability to walk. We welcome walker, cane, and wheelchair users because we believe everyone deserves the same benefits of social wellbeing regardless of physical ability.
Research states that medical providers are insufficiently trained on aid assessments & are therefore unable to provide adequate instruction to patients, increasing rates of improper use.
This guide gives you the direct steps to adjust & safely use your walker, avoiding potentially damaging falls and injuries.
Three times a day, every day, after each meal...that's how much Pop walked. Pop walked outside, inside, up the hill, rain or shine, even with his portable oxygen tank that he loathed in his final months. With all of the chronic health conditions he had, Pop never stopped walking for the greater good of his physical and mental health.
His motivation and dedication inspired the creation of
Walk With Pop!
Not only did he enjoy walking, he loved sharing his unique life story.
Our intention aside from aiding in optimal health is to restore the relationships with our beloved elders through connection, inclusion, and activity. One walk together may offer a lifetime of wisdom.
Companions are the lifeline of our mission.
At Walk With Pop we value integrity, transparency, commitment, and care. We believe in the healing power of connection.
