Socialization is Important for Seniors

Many seniors in our community do not have any friends or relatives living in the area. The miss out on regular conversations that many of us might take for granted. Lacking frequent contact with others can lead to deeper issues such as loneliness, depression, and malnutrition. 

Through Telecare, volunteers get to know seniors and can recognize their need for medical attention, transportation, food, or other services. They can also refer individuals to our wraparound services, including home-delivered meals, house cleaning, home health aides, and therapy. 

If you or someone you know could use a friendly phone call from an RSVP Retired and Senior Volunteer Program volunteer, sign up today! You can count on a volunteer to check-in to see how you are doing at a designated time.

For more information contact Tessa Engelhart at or 330-618-2955. 

The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program is funded by the Corporation for National and Community Service.
