Phone call support to 2 elderly individuals [PRE-TRAINED VOLUNTEERS ONLY]

Each volunteer joining this support-program must have attended our April 25th information session and be available to support two elderly individuals, by making at least 4 phone calls each week over a four-week period (2 calls to each person).
In order to join this program volunteers must sign-up for all of the four-week slots below (this is important for our tracking purposes). First phone calls will be made on Tuesday May 5th—after then a suitable day and time for calling will be determined between the volunteer and the elderly person they are supporting.

Description: With most of Hong elderly self-isolating, afraid and unable to leave their homes, help from the city’s volunteers is desperately needed to support the mental health of these vulnerable individuals. The effects of social isolation can include anxiety, depression, and even cognitive decline.

Volunteer roles: Each volunteer will be assigned two elderly individuals to call on the phone and check in with at least twice a week (4 calls each week in total). They will provide social connection and emotional support and help their district’s elderly centre to determine their well-being and immediate needs.

All volunteers who attend this activity must be registered with HandsOn Hong Kong. 




義工角色:每位義工將獲分配兩名長者的聯絡方式,義工需每週分別致電最少兩次 (每週一共致電4次),提供社交聯繫和情感支持,並幫助中心了解他們的健康和迫切需要。
