About

Help Ensure the Safety of a Homebound Senior

Volunteers make daily calls to other seniors who are homebound or semi-homebound. These seniors often are without family or close friends or do not wish to be a burden on them. Volunteers provide a daily safety call and some consistent companionship.

The RSVP volunteer will make daily calls Monday through Friday at a pre-arranged time to one or more seniors in their homes. The volunteer will be trained prior to the first call in case there is a concern for the senior's safety. The volunteer will take the time for a brief, five minute chat at the time of each call if the senior wishes to talk. This position is great for a person who is homebound and wants to volunteer. All you need is a phone.
