Friendly phone call for the elderly
Published 15/11/2012 | 10:46
DUHALLOW has the highest ageing population in the country and it is very important that the elderly are not forgotten. IRD Duhallow would like to encourage older people to register for their weekly call service to ensure they have contact with someone.
Trained volunteers will phone the elderly every week to ensure they are safe as well as having a friendly chat. IRD Duhallow is inviting individuals as well as actively retired groups, day care centres and family members to contact IRD Duhallow regarding this service.
This phone call service is free of charge and is available to all older people at a time suitable to them.
