A Friend is only a Phone Call away!
With the current social distancing and the colder months ahead of us, it is especially easy to feel lonely and long for a friend on the other end of the line. The Isabella County Commission on Aging offers a FREE Friendly Caller service to Isabella County older adults and their families. The Friendly Caller program is available to any older adult who would like or benefit from a scheduled telephone call. Calls can be temporary while recuperating from an illness or calls can be arranged on a permanent basis around your schedule.
To sign up for the Friendly Caller Program, please talk with your Case Manager or call Kelly Herrmann, Gold Key Volunteer Coordinator, at (989) 772-0748.
*A trained Gold Key Volunteer or Staff Member will make regular telephone contact with a program participant. If the older adult does not answer his/her telephone, the Volunteer will contact COA staff who will try to reach an established emergency contact. Emergency services (9-1-1) may be contacted if necessary.*
