Social Call, a Friendly Visitor program for Older Adults

Are you looking for a way to support older adults?

Social Call volunteers are paired with an older adult for weekly friendly visits. As a Social Call volunteer you'll provide social support and friendship, connecting with the same older adult once a week by phone or video-conference.

Social Call volunteers find that being a Friendly Visitor is a uniquely rewarding experience and many develop long-term friendships with their older adult match.

Social Call volunteers:

• receive training and ongoing support

• are matched with an adult 60 years or older, a person who wants to connect with you!

• form a friendship with an older adult participant and commit to one call per week for at least 6 months

• are background checked; we cover the cost

For more information, please email us at socialcall@covia.org.
