This program is designed to support isolated, lonely or housebound seniors living independently in the greater Hamilton Area. Trained volunteers will place call once a week on a set day & time to provide a friendly ear and ensure a senior’s well being. Daily contact decreases feelings of anxiety living alone and lessen isolation. You can feel secure knowing you have someone else concerned of your well being. Telephone calls average between 15 to 30 minutes and seniors are matched with a volunteer who share the same interests and hobbies. This program is only telephone calling and not friendly visiting.
