A trained volunteer will place a phone call on a regularly scheduled basis to a senior who is in need of someone to touch base with them to ensure their well-being and to have a friendly conversation. These daily calls offer a sense of security and support seniors in their choice to remain living independently.
What If I Have Lifeline?
The Telephone Reassurance program is a great compliment to Lifeline because you get a daily telephone call from someone who is interested in your well-being and has time to chat. Lifeline is a separate program for emergencies, such as falls or accidents, or health problems requiring emergency assistance
Is there a fee?
Cost of the A.C.E. Telephone Reassurance Program is based on income. A sliding fee scale is used to determine the cost of service to program participants. No one will be denied services because of their inability to pay for services.
