For many of you who “know” or come to the Highland Senior Center, you might begin to think that the Transportation Assistance Program (TAP) is the only Outreach program we have here. While it may be the largest Outreach Program, there are others that are just as important and useful as the TAP.

The Friendly Visitor Program is a free program designed for those who trouble getting out of the house on their own, to make friends and maintain social interaction. Our volunteers will go and visit people in their own homes and let them know that someone does care about them. Sometimes they will simply talk or play a game of cards. Other times they will go out to lunch or a movie.

Our Phone Pal Program is similar to the Friendly Visitor Program, but is more designed for those who don’t want or need someone to come over to their house. They are happy with a simple phone call. Some enjoy long conversations, while others just want someone to check in on them once a week. This program has come in handy several times when a senior could not be contacted. We physically checked on them, along with emergency personnel, and discovered they had fallen and were unable to reach a phone.

If you could benefit from any of these programs, or if you know of someone who could, please feel free to contact us at (909)862-8104 and ask for the Outreach Office.
