Visit with an older adult via phone!
Become a phone visitor for an older adult! New volunteer trainings held often via web conference. Great opportunity to volunteer from home (no traffic!). 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), compassionate, good conversational skills.
