CATHOLIC CHARITIES HAWAII

  • 77 people are interested

Phone-A-Friend volunteers provide a social connection and wellness checks for homebound, low income seniors. Volunteers are assigned to one or more homebound seniors to make calls on a regularly scheduled basis.

Volunteers contact their assigned seniors on the agreed upon schedule to make sure that the seniors are able to answer the phone; and to provide telephone social support to reduce loneliness and a wellness check. The program helps seniors maintain their independence and ability to live at home, and reduces social isolation and loneliness.
