Care Calls and Friendly Visits are important points of connection
Through community outreach and Care Calls, we reach older adults who will benefit from our services and empower them to ask for the help they need. We seek to provide better service to more older adults and to forge personal connections with our members and volunteers. At the base of each of our services is the opportunity for tangible, meaningful connection- to build real relationships, to make true neighbors of people who live next door to each other. We don’t want our seniors to merely survive in their homes, we want them to thrive.
A Little Help has both staff and volunteers who reach out to our members through weekly phone calls. Check-in calls are casual and ensure we are in touch with those members who are feeling isolated in their homes and/or may not have family near. Calls also give us an opportunity to ensure the member's needs are being identified. We have a few dedicated volunteers who work closely with our staff in reaching out to members weekly or bi-weekly. If you are interested in being a member of this team, please contact us at 720-242-9032.
Through our partnership with AmeriCorp's Boomers Leading Change, we have a wonderful team leading our Warm Welcome Program. This team greets new A Little Help members by visiting them in their homes and sharing more about how A Little Help can provide assistance. If some of the needs are too large and complex for A Little Help to address, our Warm Welcome Team will suggest resources, including other organizations and companies. This is one of our first steps in forging personal connections with our members.
