Our mission

Grandpal's goal is to ensure a better quality of life for our older generations, combatting increasing levels of old-age loneliness and bringing families together as they plan for their loved ones. This and other types of community are important sources of support for those who feel the pressure of balancing their loved ones' happiness and care with a busy everyday life.

Our mission is to help provide this sense of community and guidance towards a more stress-free way of supporting all families through the generations.
