Telephone Reassurance and Friendly Visitor Program
New Service from the SCOA!

The Salisbury Council on Aging's Telephone Reassurance and Friendly Visitor Program is available for those who don't get out often, are homebound or a bit lonely. The program has a friendly person call or visit several times a month to share conversation, memories and interests. Callers can also make regular phone calls, read, write notes and help with personal correspondence, initiate handcrafts or play games and cards.

The group brings trained volunteers to the homebound elderly and the disabled. Those who are lonely or isolated, as well as those who are sick or frail, but not in need of constant care or medical attention can benefit from socialization and conversation either at home or in a nursing home.

Those interested in the program should call the Salisbury Council on Aging at 978-462-2412.
