At Home In Darien is launching a friendly caller program. Volunteer callers will be matched with an older adult who would benefit from a friendly ear on the other end of the telephone. Friendly volunteer callers will provide lively conversation and laughter to a senior living at home, in addition to a sense of connection, added security, and friendship.
Gina Blum, executive director of At Home In Darien, is thrilled to launch this new program. Blum said, “The friendly caller program enhances the volunteer services we already offer. I believe many seniors who live independently at home will enjoy having a new friend and will look forward to regular phone calls and conversations from their friendly caller.”
“We hope seniors in town will take advantage of this opportunity to participate in the friendly caller program,” she said.
In addition to friendly callers, At Home In Darien offers volunteer visitors, shoppers and helpers to any senior who could benefit from such assistance.
Anyone wishing to request a friendly caller, to be a volunteer, or who would like further information about volunteer services, please call the At Home In Darien office at 203-655-2227 or email [email protected].
