The Auxiliary Proudly Sponsors Tele-care Program

Each morning, 365 days a year, a Tele-Care volunteer phones the homes of Tele-Care clients to confirm the client is all right. If the volunteer caller is unable to reach a client, they will contact a neighbor or family member according to a pre-arranged protocol. Tele-Care clients are often senior citizens who are recovering from an illness or are home-bound.
