Friendly Caller Program

The Isabella County Commission on Aging offers Friendly Calling service to Isabella County older adults and their families. The Friendly Calling program is available to any older adult who would like or benefit from a daily telephone call.

Perhaps they are isolated and would just like someone to say hello to them each day.
