Description

Visit with an older adult via phone!
Become a phone visitor for an older adult in Los Angeles County! We are currently in need of volunteers for Beverly Hills participants and Spanish or Persian-speaking volunteers. New volunteer trainings held often via web conference. Great opportunity to volunteer from home. Make a new connection! We all receive the health benefits and joy from connecting with others - this is true of volunteers and older adult participants. We emphasize thoughtful matches based on interests or hobbies and conversations where both parties are giving and receiving.

As a visitor for Social Call, a Covia Community Service, you will:

  • Receive training in interpersonal skills and creative aging concepts.
  • Be matched with an older adult to whom you will provide friendly companionship.
  • Submit very brief monthly reports.
  • Try the program for at least 6-months
  • Visit your match by phone 30 minutes/week.

Qualifications: pass an online background check; availability for a 1.5 hr training (ONLINE, so easily accessible!), compassionate, good conversational skills. 
 

For more information, please contact: Karen Miller at kmmiller@covia.org.
