Friendly Visting/Telechek

If you or someone you know would benefit by having a volunteer visit on a regular basis, this can be arranged. Time may be spent sharing hobbies, reading aloud from newspapers, playing games or just plain having a chat.
For someone who lives alone, a daily hello and conversation with a cheerful voice can be very reassuring. Telechek can also reduce the number of times that someone is ill or injured without anyone being aware of the situation.
