Volunteers will be assigned isolated seniors who would appreciate a quick “check in” phone call to see how they are doing and if they have any needs that are not being met. Should volunteers discover that the Senior has a need that requires a referral or assistance, the volunteer will report that concern to the program coordinator for follow up. Although a warm and friendly tone is required, phone calls should take approximately 5-10 minutes and is not intended for long conversation/ friendly visiting format. There will be minimal tracking required and volunteers will report this information to Senior Support program coordinator.
Volunteers must live in the Campbell River Area.
Our Senior population is experiencing increased isolation due to ongoing COVID 19 crisis. Regular check ins only take a few minutes, and can make a huge difference in helping seniors to get the support that they may need.
