Calls are made to a large number of people we serve. Many elderly and/or disabled individuals not only live alone, but are often without family nearby. CareGivers volunteers call those people who have expressed a desire to receive daily or weekly reassurance phone calls. Knowing a CareGivers volunteer will call gives these people peace of mind. CareGivers often has clients call one another for this task, thus helping people form "telephone friendships," as well as making the person feel good about themselves because they are contributing to helping others.
