Heart to Heart Ageless Love

Passionately Dedicated to Serving Older Adults

Heart to Heart Logo.png



We all categorize and judge far too much: "The bent-over old man, grumpy, wrinkled, shuffling, inept on a cell phone, computer confused, disheveled, hard to understand, inattentive". 

Stop! These are people with full lives, many experiences, and full hearts. There is much to be learned from the six, seven, eight, or even nine decades of another’s life. We like to listen to young kids; they’re cute, funny, sweet, adorable. However, society has a tendency to discard not only the opinions of older adults but the older adult population as a whole.

They have a lot to offer us if we are willing to be open and listen.


This is not just about Heart to Heart, this is about love. Love is founded on understanding. Understanding comes from listening; not hearing but listening.


 Honor those in the past, help those in the present, and plan to help those in the future not only for us but our children.

Open your Heart to Heart.

Heart to Heart is a new non-profit effort organized to provide services to Older Adults in our communities.

Heart to Heart was founded on the principles of a commitment to helping others through a compassionate, non-judgmental, personal approach. We are dedicated to addressing needs identified by Older Adults in a manner that is convenient and easily accessible to them. We are about listening, understanding, and learning about each person we serve.  Building friendly relationships and experiencing personal moments are our rewards.

Jud Knox found himself searching for meaningful focus with a predisposition to identified gaps in care for Older Adults and the very unique threats of the onset of the pandemic. My wife Laurie, and I decided to initiate a service to address Older Adults’ concerns. Our approach was very open-ended. We founded and continue to fund this 501(c) 3 and recruited dedicated Community Board Members.

They started by offering rides, technology assistance, errands, grocery and pharmacy deliveries, and phone companionship, In conjunction with partners; The Caring Kitchen, York Housings’

Neighborhood Network and the Vet to Vet program we expanded our offerings.


Fortuitously, some folks much more experienced in “Senior Services” than ourselves, suggested that there was an enormous need for “transportation". Thus, we adjusted our emphasis without sacrificing our principles or existing efforts. Once clarified, the requests for rides have grown exponentially! While we are not specifically a transportation service, we all know the sharing of experiences, friends, and life that comes while we travel to and from destinations.

We now have a wonderful core of about twenty-five volunteers! They are Heart to Heart: committed, flexible, friendly, and generous. Their generous gifts of time, effort, compassion, and the operation and fueling of their personal vehicles make all possible.

We continue to evaluate possible new services as we understand the expressions of those we serve. As requests grow, we invite new volunteers and welcome donations to support our efforts.

We can be contacted by phone, at 207-363-7311, or website

Although we are trying to resume in-person meetings with clients, we still encourage clients to consider meeting with us remotely, particularly if they have health concerns. Our office staff has been vaccinated, and we practice social distancing, but remote meeting through the use of technology like Zoom is safe and convenient, so we continue to encourage its use.
