National Initiative for the Care of the Elderly (NICE) 

Daily, 10 a.m. - 10 p.m. (Eastern)  Free 

This new nationwide phone outreach service connects older adults and persons with disabilities to social workers and social work students. The program aims to provide community members with prolonged engagement through friendly check-in phone calls weekly and bi-weekly. The program is an opportunity for older adults who may be experiencing isolation or loneliness to "check in" with an empathetic, non-judgemental and compassionate person on a regular basis. Call 1-844-529-7292 (toll-free) to schedule your friendly call or go online to book a time.
