Co-Founder, Hilarity for Charity

Even before the pandemic, HFC was hosting virtual programs across the U.S. and Canada for people caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's or dementia. Our goal is to make support as easy and accessible as possible. We've tried many platforms. Social hour provided the "we made it" moment in our long search for a platform that could meet our unique needs. Social hour is intuitive, versatile, and fun. Most importantly, our support team felt like an extension of our own; invested in our goals, willing and able to solve problems, and present to our needs. We will definitely use Social hour again.
