Villanova ReachOut program helps decrease the feeling of social isolation among seniors
Villanova University has developed a ReachOut program in an effort to decrease the feeling of social isolation among seniors. The program partners student volunteers and older adults to participate in weekly telephone calls to engage in social discussion. Calls continue weekly or at a mutually agreed upon frequency.
Villanova ReachOut has received excellent feedback from both the volunteers and their older adult partners.
