Description

CJE SeniorLife is recruiting volunteers to make regular friendly calls and visits to older adults living in the Chicago-land community. There are many adults who are not able to get out as much as they used to and are not able to visit with friends as before.


With our new Friendly Caller or Visitor program we will match you with someone interested in making new connections.


With your friendly call or visit, you will...


  • Develop friendships
  • Make a life-changing contribution to the well-being of older adults
  • Add to your own routine with pleasant conversation


Any person 18 years or older is eligible to apply to volunteer. Training will be provided. You may call from our office or your own phone. Calls should be made on a regular basis, including birthdays, holidays and other special occasions. You and your friend will determine what is best for each of you.


Research shows that friends are good for your health! Let us help you connect with a new friend! Please send completed application http://bit.ly/2g3wX0e to volunteers@cje.net
