ORGANIZATION: Eskaton

Volunteers Demonstrate the Heart of Eskaton

The desire to be known, understood and connected is shared by all and recognized as an integral part of being human. In fact, whether these needs are being met or not plays a large role in our personal well-being and overall satisfaction with life. Studies confirm the many health benefits produced by meaningful relationships. These benefits include increased longevity, improved emotional and physical health, better cognition and an increased sense of meaning and purpose. Ultimately, we believe friendships enhance our quality of life and well-being.

This is precisely why the Eskaton Telephone Reassurance Program commits to establishing hundreds of social connections, 365 days a year and at no cost to the participant. The dynamic of friendly phone conversations lends itself to building treasured relationships, the very reason why there are many individuals, both call recipients and volunteers, who have participated in the program for over 5 years, with some friendships lasting more than twenty. Join us at the Eskaton Community Outreach office on the Eskaton Village Roseville campus and enrich the lives of seniors through connection.
