Telephone Assurance Program

What We Do

A volunteer places a friendly call to a Senior living in the community to chat and see that everything is all right with him or her.

Why We Do It 

  • We assist those elderly at high risk so they can continue to live in their homes for as long as appropriate.
  • We provide the elderly living in the community with a feeling of security, knowing that their health and safety is being monitored.
  • We encourage social interaction and help prevent isolation.
  • We provide Seniors with a valuable link with other community resources, advising them of other useful resources of which they might wish to take advantage.
  • We provide family respite and support.
