Age Minimum (with Adult): 15+, Minimum Age:18+

Friendly Reassurance Phone Calls to the Elderly

With our Visiting Volunteers program, we strive to meet the social and emotional needs of some of the community’s most vulnerable population - older adults and persons with disabilities. Through weekly visits, the program matches program participants with volunteers who provide companionship, outreach, and advocacy. Volunteers commit to visiting their individual match a minimum of once a week for a year. Volunteers receive formal training focusing on person centered engagement and sensitivity to the needs of individuals facing difficult life circumstances (e.g., health issues, grief, etc.). These vital supports increase the opportunity for older adults to remain in housing of their choosing for as long as possible by reducing loneliness and isolation. During the pandemic, in person visits have been suspended and volunteers are making weekly reassurance phone calls to participants. Phone calls are vitally important during this time to reduce social isolation.
