Could you use a friend?
Do you need:
Home visits or telephone calls for companionship?
Assistance with reading mail, writing letters or paying bills?
Assisted transportation to medical appointments, the grocery store, errands, etc.?
Personal visits and Ring-a-Day services are provided days and evenings.
Do you want a Ring-A-Day call?
A daily telephone call checks to see that everything is okay. The call may also serve as a reminder for those who have trouble remembering to take their medications.
Do you have to pay?
Friendly Visitors provide services for free, but contributions are welcome!
“I look forward to Joan, the volunteer, stopping by to visit. We talk about everything from my grandchildren to my favorite hobby, gardening. I no longer feel so lonely.” — Friendly Visitors participant
Seniors are paired with compassionate volunteers who are carefully screened and trained.
