Get Connected

At Northwood, it’s not just what we do for you, but also how we do it.

Get Connected provides a regular social call from a Northwood volunteer to an older adult living alone.

Get Connected offers:
  • A free weekly connection with a trained volunteer
  • A friendly connection with someone who knows your name
  • Pleasant conversation on topics of mutual interest
Get Connected highlights:
  • Calls promote meaningful conversation between volunteer and client
  • Volunteers are matched to individuals based on common interests
  • The program runs from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m., Monday to Friday

(specific call times are arranged between participants)
