VOLUNTEERING: A Great Way To Grow

Telephone Visitor

Posted by on June 18th, 2015

Description

We provide telephone visits to individuals who are waiting for a volunteer visitor to come to their home weekly.  Volunteers simply call to have a chat and keep in touch.  Calls may vary from 5-30 minutes depending on the individuals and situation.  Telephone visitors call at least monthly but if the client is lonely they may call as often as once a week.  Volunteers may choose to have from one to six clients on their call list and call the same people each month to establish  a relationship.
