Area 10 is offering a new service to connect older adults and individuals with disabilities who are interested in receiving calls with friendly volunteers to check in by phone once a week and have a nice conversation.
The Area 10 Friend-to-Friend program provides a social outlet both for the individuals placing and receiving the calls. During social distancing, alternate means of social connection is even more important, especially for people who live alone or in facilities that cannot accept visitors.
Besides phone calls, individuals may also indicate their interest in receiving cards or letters, or participating in video calls.
