CheckMates

Posted by Admin on November 9, 2015

CheckMates, a program of AgeWell at the JCC, is a telephone reassurance program consisting of older adult volunteers making weekly phone calls to other older adults who may be isolated, homebound or lonely.  Through our trained volunteers and social workers, we are able to connect those CheckMate recipients with additional support and community resources in order to help them remain independent and in their own homes.  Through CheckMates, volunteers and participants develop phone relationships that have lasted for years.
