Friends from Meals on Wheels is a new friendly visitor program for seniors receiving Meals on Wheels in Santa Clara County.
We are in need of a Cantonese speaking volunteer to make weekly friendly phone calls to seniors that are homebound and lonely. The phone calls are conversational, and involve asking the senior how they're doing, etc.
We ask for a commitment of about 1 hour/week for 4-6 months.
The completion of a volunteer application and a brief training are required.
If interested, please reply to this post. Or, email Claire Bleymaier, Program Coordinator at: Claireb@healthtrust.org. Phone: 408-961-9873.
