Phone Companions

Friendship is the secret to feeling cared about, connected, and engaged.

There is nothing like the feeling one gets when a friend is about to call—the laughter, the stories, sharing of experiences. If you are an older adult or care for someone who is, the phone may not be ringing as often as you would like. That is where Phone Companions come in. We connect older adults with warm and caring volunteers ready to create and enjoy a connection.

It all begins with just a phone call and blossoms from there. We know because we have been successfully bringing friends together for 50 years.

Get connected with people eager to share their friendship.

  • Completely free to older adults 62 years or older
  • Volunteers are background checked
  • Quick and easy to join
