Visitation & Phone Support
Isolation is a common feeling among seniors — especially when that person no longer drives and cannot go somewhere just to get out and be among others. So is the feeling of anxiety — particularly when news events or weather or personal circumstances beyond their control take place around them. A visitor or a simple phone call can make a huge difference in one’s sense of well-being if living alone and somewhat compromised in mobility. Pleasant conversation can do wonders in lifting the spirit or settling the nerves.
If you enjoy people and take pleasure in conversation, this might be your area for volunteering. If interested, or for more information, complete the contact form to the right.
