Reassurance Contact

Agency: CONTACT of Mercer County
Service Description:

Provides free calls to homebound seniors to check daily on their well being. Volunteers are paired with seniors, so that the individual is always speaking to the same person. Calls are prearranged to occur at a time that works for both the client and the volunteer. If the client fails to answer, the volunteer will alert family, friends, or neighbors. In extreme cases the police may be asked to check on the client if no one else is available. Seniors can also call the hotline at any time, in case they have an emergency or wish to talk to someone at length.

Fees:

None
