Persons requiring this type of assistance are usually senior citizens who have very little contact within the community. Sometimes, the only contacts these isolated persons receive are from volunteers calling to check on their well-being.
The Friendly Caller-Are You OK? program provides check in, telephone reassurance and friendly phone calls to area older adults or disabled individuals who are homebound. Friendly Caller-Are You OK? is a collaboration between: The Wells County Council on Aging, Volunteer Center-RSVP Wells County, and the Wells County Sheriff’s Department.
