Telephone Safety Calls
Hearing the voice of a friendly, caring individual on the telephone can give you that added daily reassurance you need to feel safe and secure.
Interfaith’s Telephone Reassurance program provides isolated older adults with an outside connection. As a participant of this free service for adults age 60 and over, you’ll receive a telephone call each day from a volunteer assigned to verify your well-being.
The program’s purpose is to ensure that older adults can maintain their independence safely within their own homes. Many times, Telephone Reassurance can prevent older adults from requiring more costly services or institutional placement. One simple phone call can give you peace of mind in knowing that a volunteer will be checking in with you at the same time each day.
To qualify, you must live alone or with an incapacitated person. Recipients must agree to receive calls at a pre-determined time, each morning, from a volunteer. The Interfaith telephone service is a vital component in helping older adults feel confident, day to day.
