Telephone Reassurance and Friendly Visitor Program
Maintaining social relationship can become more difficult as we age. To insure continued well-being of older adults who isolated or homebound, our professional staff and volunteers provide regular telephone calls and/or home visits to help older adults stay connected in their community and engaged in meaningful relationships. Both of these programs are designed as a “check on a client’s well-being”, as well as providing companionship and conversation. A pre-arranged telephone call and/or home visit is scheduled with the client. If the client can not be contacted, emergency contacts will be notified, an outreach worker will go to the home, or the appropriate medical personnel will be contacted to conduct a wellness check. If you or a loved one is interested in this program, please call the Council on Aging at 419-523-4121 or toll-free 1-877-796-1760 for more information.
The Telephone Reassurance and Friendly Visitor Program would not be possible without dedicated and compassionate volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering for these two programs, please call the Council on Aging at 419-523-4121 or toll-free 1-877-796-1760.
