Are you a senior who is feeling lonely and would like someone to keep in touch?
For many of us, a call from a friend once or twice a week makes a big difference in how we feel. Knowing that someone cares and is there to share stories and laugh with is comforting and meaningful in so many ways.
The Keep in Touch Program connects the people in our community with each other through a weekly telephone support system. Through Keep in Touch we can connect you with a friendly person to chat with and they can help you find resources if needed.
How Does It Work?
If you are a senior who would like to receive a call each week, OR if you have a neighbor or family member whose days could be brightened simply give us a call to complete the registration; the registration form can be on this page. We will pair that senior with a verified volunteer for safety who will call once or twice a week.
We all have stories, wisdom and interests to share! Please encourage the seniors you know to contact us today and join Keep in Touch!
Also, if you know someone who has a few hours a week to bring joy and interest to someone's life as a volunteer in the program, please have them give us a call.
