Each senior is matched with his/her own trained volunteer phone buddy to maintain consistency and ongoing personal connection over many months of weekly conversations.
We listen if the senior wants to talk. We talk if the senior wants to listen.
Our role is neutral, warm, and friendly. We don't diagnose physical or psychological issues. And we don't take a stand on political or religious topics.
We're HIPAA-compliant. All calls are documented and all volunteers are supervised. We offer full transparency for staff and families.
