the sunset of life brings new adventures.

What We Do

People in Touch  provides individualized services to senior adults in the Dallas, TX community, who want to stay mentally and actively engaged through everyday conversations, discussions and excursions, but no longer drive and/or get out of their homes or centers as a single person as much. Although often living with others and participating in group senior events & activities with other older adults, some just want to do something that is just an individual interest or activity.  So what services do we offer?

  • Face-To-Face Conversations
  • Senior Outings, Events, Activities & Excursions - Individual and Group
  • Just Getting out for Errands
  • Personalized Shopping
  • Home Maintenance

We respect that senior adults need to be able to make choices and stay active.   These enhanced senior companion services will help to stimulate mentally active seniors and promote mental enrichment through senior companionship. As we get to know our clients, some families wish to have us provide a more concentrated service while the family is on vacation or on a business trip.  We want to continue to help out our seniors who can no longer get out.

We also want to help our seniors when they can’t or do not want to get out.  We will shop and/or pick up items for them.  We will even help them pick out items online and get them ordered by bringing out computer and internet hotspot!  Do you need some home repair or even repair of personal items in the retirement center room? We have a wonderful man to do this.

How do we start out? Services will commence with an interview with the client at his/her home or resident center in the Dallas, TX community. This will be an "informal" interview to determine interests, likes and dislikes, favorite ways to learn and interact, etc. We really don’t believe in forms and rote questions.  Instead we visit with the person and often a family member or two and just talk to find out starting points.  Think like a “blind date” rather than a doctor visit.

Who We Are

We want to use our considerable years of experience in working in education and community service to enrich the lives of older adults in the greater Dallas area. We are not profit-driven, but wish to give back what we have gained through our senior concierge services.

We hope to restore or build upon an older adult’s passion for life, personal joy in learning and thriving, and a reason to look forward to the next day.  When the conversation ends each time, we hope the person we touched feels revived and interested in whatever is new. In other words, we want to share a passion for learning and sharing. All scientific evidence points to the fact that staying involved socially and intellectually, experiencing new ideas are critical to happiness and well-being. Being "brainy" is not just about mental exercise, but engagement; which is why our senior activities and companionship services are so essential.

We are especially adept at thinking of solutions to issues, managing different personalities, and meeting expectations. We want to have a little fun along the way as well; we are normal and well-adjusted, yet still love learning and solving problems.

Let us Introduce ourselves.

We are Jimmy and Sandy Maddox. Like most people who enjoyed rich careers, we wanted to continue to be engaged and in a position to help others through senior activities.  Frankly, one of us is not willing to sit around and “enjoy retirement” but must be always doing something.  Besides, she likes to talk and bring out the talk in others.  The male partner is a little more willing to settle back and listen and just encourage others to talk.  We have friends working with us who have the same characteristics. Yes it’s usually the women who will not settle down but we need the men to help us too.  We discovered that many people like the opposite sex. Sometimes we work as a couple too.

 We especially enjoy working with senior adults who have a strong desire to stay active and mentally engaged and agile. We have a great respect for older adults and believe that accumulated wisdom of aging people is to be celebrated. We are proud of our senior companionship service and the impact we continue to have on our community. We are long-term Dallasites and know our way around its history and its current richness!



The brain is amazingly resilient! According to the recent studies, a brain gets smaller and lighter with age (15% by age 80 – good grief). The one place in the body that you might not want to be smaller and lighter, happens without much effort. But, this slim-downed brain can still function as effectively as a younger brain. That’s exciting – almost like a sense of the fountain of youth. But people have to want to drink the water. That means engagement. The brain has to create new connections between existing neurons. Several studies indicate that improving memory by at least 30 percent can happen just by engaging the mind.
