Safety and Well-Being
The Telephone Reassurance program gives peace of mind to seniors who live alone, by providing them with regularly scheduled safety check phone calls.
A trained volunteer will schedule a phone call with a senior on a regularly basis to ensure their well-being and to have a friendly conversation. These daily calls offer a sense of security and support for seniors in their choice to remain living independently.
What if I have Lifeline?
The Telephone Reassurance program is a great compliment to Lifeline because you get a daily telephone call from someone who is interested in your well-being and has time to chat. Lifeline is a separate program for emergencies, such as falls or accidents, or health problems requiring emergency assistance.
How can we help?
A.C.E.'s trained Telephone Reassurance Volunteers provide scheduled phone calls to adults age 60+ who are living independently and need scheduled "check-in" calls and/or someone to talk to. Volunteers are recruited from all walks of life. A commitment for helping others is the most important requirement for becoming a volunteer of our Telephone Reassurance program.
Is there a fee?
