'G-Date' program helps seniors make connections

You may have heard of dating services like Tinder, JDate and Bumble, but there's one program at the Hebrew Home in Riverdale that is catering to seniors.



"G-Date," or "Grandparent Date," was started about a year and a half ago by Hebrew Home staff members.



Men and women can apply for the program, share their likes, dislikes and what they're looking for, and then get matched for a first date.



Whether it's a companion, lover or something more permanent, the program has those looking for love in their elder years covered.
