FDS Keeping in Touch

What does it do?

Our friendly faces home visiting service provides volunteers who make regular social visits, offering company and a friendly chat to older people who live alone, are housebound, have days when they see no one

Telephone service: Some older people feel that they wouldn't like to have a visitor coming into their home, but a regular call can build up a friendship without intrusion.  Through the co-ordinator and a team of volunteers, our telephone companionship service offers regular phone calls to alleviate loneliness and provides a regular point of contact for the older person, giving them a friendly call to look forward to.
