Check on a Senior Citizen - Volunteer Reassurance Specialist
CONTACT Reassurance is a program of CONTACT Care Line, Inc., East Tennessee’s oldest crisis hotline. Safety concerns and social isolation threaten the ability for seniors to live independently. CONTACT Reassurance provides trained volunteers to make daily calls, in the comfort of their own home, to seniors who live alone, and have little to no caregiver support. We want your help! Our mission is to help older adults maintain an independent living status and reduce their social isolation. Our program cannot thrive if it weren’t for our dedicated volunteers.
WHAT WE DO: The Reassurance Program provides a daily telephone call from a volunteer to at-risk seniors, who live alone with little or no caregiver support.
WHAT WILL YOU DO: This volunteer opportunity is for those interested in checking on senior citizens by giving them a daily social call or by giving them a safety check call (1-2 times a day). Medication reminders may also be included in the calls. After an initial 4 hour training course, you would make your calls from the comfort of your home.
