Telephone Reassurance

For some seniors, it’s the only conversation they’ll have in a day.

Post

Telephone Reassurance trained volunteers provide friendly check-in calls to older adults who live alone or are isolated and would benefit from regular connection to our friendly network of volunteers.

“I look so forward to my daily calls and sometimes it’s the only one I get. May God bless you all for the outstanding job you do.”

Personal Connection

Telephone ReassuranceTelephone Reassurance

Socialization, peace of mind and a friendly voice are all part of the experience for Eskaton’s Telephone Reassurance participants. Trained volunteers place calls seven days a week, 365 days a year to older adults who live alone. The calls serve as a “wellness check”, plus provide an opportunity to socialize. The program has been offered since 1996 as a community service to older adults in the greater Sacramento region.

Home Visits

For isolated seniors, having a personal visit makes all the difference in the world. Caring volunteers, who are partnered with homebound older adults based on common interests and location, provide companionship two to four times a month. All volunteers have passed a background check.
