Do you know someone who would like some friendly company or a daily phone call?
Our caring volunteers provide friendly visits and telephone calls to homebound seniors to help them create a social connection and feel less isolated.
During visits, activities may include short walks, reading, discussing current events or playing cards.
Friendly Visiting and Telephone Reassurance Calls are free and available to seniors between 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. who reside within our service area.
