We serve lunch at the JCafe Monday through Friday from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Some of our senior adults need assistance carrying their lunch to one of the tables. This is a wonderful opportunity to help while at the same time getting to know our amazing senior adults. They have some wonderful stories and knowledge to share.

Mission Statement

AgeWell Pittsburgh is dedicated to helping older adults continue to live independently in their own homes. We seek to identify seniors at risk of losing their independence and help them connect to services that will allow them to remain safely at home, for as long as possible.

Description

Checkmates. a program of AgeWell Pittsburgh is a peer-led telephone reassurance program for older adults. Checkmates offers a connection between senior volunteers and older adults in our community who may be homebound, isolated and lonely.

Confidential phone calls are made once a week by senior adult volunteers at the Jewish Community Center. A call from a peer who listens and cares is comforting and reassuring.

Checkmates volunteers are trained so that they feel confident and prepared to make phone calls. Call times are flexible and can be arranged to suit your schedule.

Donating your time to Checkmates is a rewarding way to make a difference in a senior adult's life.

For more information please call Amy Gold, Checkmates coordinator, at 412-521-8011 ext. 207
