Friendly Social Call & Visitor

Be matched with a senior to call and check in on them on a weekly basis to help lessen isolation and create a meaningful friendship over the phone or in person. Many of our clients are isolated and lonely and would appreciate someone to call or visit them regularly to converse about topics of interest to both them and you and at the same time, have someone check in on them to see how they’re doing. Since this volunteer program has the option to be a virtual one you can be located anywhere in the United States to be matched with a senior. As a Friendly Social Call volunteer, you will schedule the calls directly with the client based on the best time that works for both parties. Calls typically last 15-30 minutes but may go longer if desired. In addition, in-person visits may be an option if you and the senior you are matched with locally both agree.
