Friendly Telephone Calls to Isolated Seniors
In the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, physical distancing during this public health crisis is essential in preventing the spread of the virus. It’s a directive we must adhere to given the nature of the disease but, it can come at a high cost to seniors. Living alone can be tough for seniors never mind during the current situation. It's crucial that we still connect with one another especially to those who are currently isolated in our community.
Do you, or do you know of someone that would welcome a friendly telephone check in a couple of times a week?
Would you like to become involved with the telephone check in program?
This initiative is to ultimately check in on the welfare of our isolated seniors in the community and assure them they are not alone. This is not a shopping/prescription pick up etc service.
