“Witnessing firsthand that older adults living in skilled nursing facilities and assisted living programs can feel isolated, the Ombudsman Services of Contra Costa and Solano expanded its program to include friendly visiting and calling. Volunteers have regular phone visits and, once safe, regular in-person visits with residents, creating bonds of friendship and connectedness.”

Thank you to Elaine Clarke, and the Daily Republic for sharing more about our new program, Friendly Visiting and Telephone Reassurance. If you know someone who would benefit from building connections, or if you would like to volunteer with us, please visit
