Help a homebound elder become less lonely by becoming a Phone-A-Friend.
6 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 regularly scheduled calls at a mutually agreeable time and day.
Volunteers contact their assigned seniors to make sure that the seniors are able to answer the phone and to provide telephonic social support to reduce loneliness. The program helps seniors maintain their independence and ability to live at home, and reduces social isolation and loneliness.
