Thank you for offering to help support seniors in our community in this unusual time! Heights and Hills works with over one thousand seniors who receive care at home and in their center who may be unusually isolated and in need of support or medical attention during the coronavirus outbreak. By checking in over the phone, you can help make sure people are getting the care that they need.
Heights and Hills will provide a virtual training and a call script to each volunteer, so no need to worry that you won’t know what to say! Volunteers will ask basic questions about how seniors are feeling, whether they have enough food and medication, and what other kinds of support might be helpful. You’ll record the information from the call in an easy-to-use form so that Heights and Hills can follow up with individuals.
For now, we’re starting with phone outreach, but we anticipate that food delivery may be needed soon. Please indicate whether we can follow up with you in the near future to help bring meals to seniors.
