Friendly Phone Calls Keep Seniors Connected, Safe

SeniorsThe Chesterfield County Senior Advocate's Telephone Reassurance Program is seeking seniors in the community to receive friendly phone calls from volunteers. Volunteers receive training and make their calls from the Senior Advocate's office four days a week. Seniors can receive calls two, three or four days. Volunteers provide moral support through telephone check-ins to make sure a senior is okay. They will not solve problems, but will provide a listening ear. These calls offer increased socialization, as well as safety checks, and give lonely, isolated individuals something to look forward to. Seniors who would like to receive calls must fill out an application listing their contact information and other details. For more information about this free program, call 768-7878 or email senioradvocate@chesterfield.gov.
