Canadian Red Cross Friendly Calls Program
The Canadian Red Cross Friendly Calls program aims to help address heightened feelings of loneliness and isolation that so many are experiencing during or as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The program has existed in some provinces for years. Elsewhere, it was launched as a result of the pandemic, in recognition of the challenges faced by our aging population, and the positive impact the existing Friendly Calls program has on both volunteers and clients.
