Description:

The free Care Through Conversation program helps Tennessee's older adults facing social isolation and food insecurity due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Volunteers will make regularly scheduled telephone calls to conduct a needs assessment, coupled with warm conversation, to ensure the participant is safe mentally and physically. Calls will generally be made weekly, but more frequent calls can be requested. Optionally, emergency contact and welfare checks can be performed if the participant cannot be contacted.

Volunteers will go through a background check and be provided training materials.

To register, go to www.tn.gov/aging/our-programs/care-through-conversation.html or call 615-253-4307.

This program is offered throughout Tennessee by the TN Commission on Aging and Disability.
