The Friendly Visiting and Telephone Reassurance Program at Isabella a member of MJHS Health System match volunteers with home-bound seniors. The volunteer will contact an older adult once per week. We are trying to minimize senior isolation and bringing them a smile and something to look forward every week. We served Hamilton Heights, Harlem, In-wood, Manhattan-ville Morning-side, Polo Grounds, and Washington Heights. We required a minimum of six months commitment, application process, background check, and orientation. Would you have any questions please feel free to contact me. Looking forward to schedule an interview.
