Reference nr. 2755 : St John - Community Health Services
Caring Caller

Volunteer remotely. If you love a good chat, have the ability to relate to the elderly, then this could be the perfect volunteering role for you.
The St John Caring Caller is a friendship-based service where we match those who need a friend with volunteers who understand the need for care and companionship, and who want to make a difference to someone's life.  Just having someone ask how they are doing and having a kind, friendly conversation on the phone can brighten their day.

A Caring Caller volunteer commits to ringing at least two people on a regular basis.  
On agreed days, you would call your new friend for an encouraging conversation, sharing items of mutual interest.  Each call lasts between 5-15 minutes.
