Seniors Support Program
Friendly Telephone Visits and ePals: Supporting seniors by staying in touch
The Seniors Support Program provides support to seniors and family caregivers living in the community by consistently staying in touch with them.
Through a scheduled weekly telephone call or e-mail, each volunteer will patiently listen to their client, offer encouragement or provide helpful information as required. If individuals need more support a social worker is available.
Our services include:
- A Friendly Telephone Visit (phone call) each week (available in several languages)
- An email message from ePals each week
- Access to a social worker for information, referral or brief counseling upon request
- Hours are Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- These services are free
