Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 13, 2018. It’s a day when mothers are showered with cards, flowers, gifts and time spent with their family. However, for many adult children it is also a reminder that we don’t always get to spend as much time as we’d like with our Moms.

These are the women who have nurtured and cared for us, are there with a listening ear, a shoulder to cry on, who offer tough love and support no matter the circumstance. And yet, obligations with work, the house, and our own children can make even weekly get-togethers with parents difficult (or impossible for those that live far away). Phone calls help, but they are not enough to fill a day.

As the years pass by, circumstances change. Where life was once filled with children, work, an active role in the community, with age came retirement, relocation, possibly divorce or the loss of a partner. These changes can lead to loneliness and social isolation.

Well, it is possible.

Amintro is the social app exclusively for those 50 plus looking to live a more socially engaged life. This platform is based on years of research and with the help of numerous wonderful partnerships. The result is a safe, private online profile that enables members to reflect who they are as a friend and what they consider important characteristics in those they would like to befriend, based on personal experiences, likes and dislikes.

Free to join, Amintro can help Mom connect with like-minded people in her own community or across the country, forming friendships both in person and online. Signing up is easy, and while you could do it on behalf of your Mom, we recommend going through the process together. This way you can show her how the app works, help answer any questions and offer encouragement to see it through.

This is not a dating site, all members have the same goal which is to form platonic friendships and live life to its fullest. Through Amintro your Mom will be able to connect with others confidently online and then head out to explore the community, try out different events, and lead a healthier, happier life in the company of others.

Membership to Amintro is free and you can register on our website or download the app from Google Play or the App Store. Learn more about us, our community and how to become an Amintronian by following us on Twitter: @AmintroLiving, or liking us on Facebook: AmintroLiving.
