Be a Phone Companion

If you are a talker and connecting one-to-one with an older adult for ongoing meaningful phone friendship appeals to you, let us pair you with someone through Phone Companions Service.

These days, the phone may not be ringing as often as our older adult friends would like. Phone friendships come with the beautiful anticipation of an expected call, engaging conversation, and the joy of getting to know someone. You can be the warm, caring voice at the end of the line that ensures one older adult knows someone cares. Build a rich and rewarding connection, one call at a time.

Time commitment: To be determined by you and your new phone companion.
