Telephone Reassurance

Do you, or someone you know, live alone and have little contact with people?
If the answer is yes, the Council on Aging/Telephone Reassurance Program might be right for you.

This program is especially for seniors age 60 and better that would like for someone to make phone contact with them Monday through Friday. On these days, a volunteer will call to make sure you are up and okay. If the volunteer does not get an answer, they will notify a contact person who will come check on you.
If you are interested in this program or being a volunteer to make calls with this program, please call the Senior Center at 704.482.3488.
