Caring Calls: Volunteers provide free daily service to check on seniors

BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Caring Calls.

The free service provided by Northern Light Health is designed to check up on seniors during these times of isolation.

Northern Light Home Care & Hospice has trained volunteers to call around 80 people every weekday morning to check on them.

Participants can expect a phone call at the same time each day.

It's a way to brighten a senior's day and make sure they hear a caring voice.

"Some people are isolated from families, friends and the community. Sometimes it's just nice to have somebody give you a call and just check in to see how you're doing and offer advice if need be," said Dr. James Jarvis.

It's easy to sign up. Just call 973-7848.
