Phoning Service — My Family Friend
One day when my brother was visiting my mother she had a minor medical emergency. He phoned me and I came over and took her to the hospital. The doctor said she’d had what they call a “mini-stroke”, and she’d probably recover fully in a few hours. She did recover, but every day after that I phoned her, just to make sure she was OK. And that started a habit that lasted for twenty years.
It was so important to her to have someone interested in what was going on in her life.
Those phone calls became very important her. I’d ask about what she was doing in her yard, and she would tell me about other problems she was having. She looked forward to those calls. I had the feeling they became part of the infrastructure that supported her life, if you know what I mean.
Those phone calls were the inspiration for our My Family Friend phoning service. One of our warm and friendly retirement age staff will be happy to call you or your family member five days a week, to make sure they’re safe and healthy, to encourage them to be active and independent, to remind them to take their medicine if they have any, and…
to be their friend.
Our phoners are not psychologists or doctors or therapists, but are familiar with the life skills taught in our online video course “Retire on Social Security” so they can provide basic coaching advice if required.
