Call homebound, socially isolated seniors with TeleCare - right from your home or office!
TeleCare is a telephone reassurance program that provides a reliable means of contact for older adults. At its core, TeleCare is a program that promotes social engagement and personal connection. TeleCare also provides peace of mind for individuals who live alone, have high risk health conditions, or are prone to falls. Caregivers, friends, and family also have peace of mind that they can count on TeleCare to check in with their loved ones.
As we age, living alone can present challenges that make many fearful of their ability to remain independent. Weekday conversations with compassionate volunteers offer an opportunity for companionship and socialization that many older adults might not otherwise receive. With TeleCare, many older adults feel a great sense of relief that they have someone reliable to check on them.
