The TeleCare Reassurance Program is a telephone support program for seniors that provides regular telephone calls to seniors who may be homebound, living alone or disabled. Other seniors may have health concerns and just want to be checked on to make sure they are well. Many have no relatives or friends living in the area. Often they have minimal contact with their community outside their home.
TeleCare clients are matched with a caring volunteer who calls them regularly. Through this frequent contact, they get to know the client well enough to recognize their need for medical attention, food, transportation, or in-home services. The relationship between volunteer and client often develops into a close friendship.
