Caring Calls Offers Conversation and Connection

More than 600 volunteers and seniors have been paired to date for Caring Calls, DOROT’s new program bringing warmth, conversation and social connection to older adults in isolation due to COVID-19.

Volunteers are matched with DOROT elders for phone visits once or twice a week over a four-week period. The calls take the place of in-home visits that were suspended in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is a significant and meaningful opportunity for intergenerational connection and friendship.

If you are an older adult who would like to receive calls from volunteers, please call DOROT at 212-769-2850 or e-mail
