How You Can Help Seniors
With the ever-changing news of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are working hard to take care of the older adults in our community. However, we can’t do it alone and need your help. Here is a list of ways you can help SCHC implement our emergency response plan:
Spread the Word
We want all of the seniors know that we are here to help them during this time of isolation. We will help any senior in Hamilton County the best we can during this time. Could you check out our Facebook video here and share it? Would you post to your neighborhood pages? Will you text the seniors you know?
Contact Lisa for more information.
Sign up as a Phone Pal
Would you be interested in calling one of our seniors to check in on them? You will have a set list of questions to discuss and be able to connect with them to help prevent isolation and ensure they have everything they need.
Any new phone pals will need to fill out a volunteer application, complete a background check and attend a virtual orientation. We ask that any phone pals check in with clients at least once per week. Many of our current volunteers have expressed they spend anywhere from 15-45 mts per call with a client.
If you are interested, please email Lisa to let us know.
Deliver Meals, Food, and Supplies
If you would like to complete the health screening and volunteer to drop off essential items at the door for a senior, please contact Lisa to learn more and see if you qualify.
Create Well Wishes (Great for families!)
If you and your kids would like to make well wishes, pictures, cards, and letters to bring cheer to our seniors, you can mail them directly to us at:
347 S. 8th Street, Suite B
Noblesville, IN 46060
We will sanitize and mail them out to our seniors to brighten their day!
While times are challenging and uncertain, we want to provide safety and security as much as possible for our seniors. Making a donation ensures we can continue to do so no matter what. We appreciate your support!
