What is the RSVP Caring Calls Program?
The program provides simple check-ins and friendly phone calls to seniors who are homebound, feeling lonely and/or isolated. This program targets individuals who are trying to remain independent. Volunteer callers are simply calling to offer companionship and give seniors a sense of connectedness to the outside world and relieve feelings of isolation.
