Friendship-At-Home (FAH) is a crisis/supportive intervention, advocacy and connection program that serves frail clients in a crisis and/or relieves isolation and loneliness.
Friendship at Home uses volunteers and community business/agency collaborations to meet the needs of seniors. The program, active in other counties, strives to fill in the gaps where other services fall short. This includes crisis/supportive intervention, such as assisting a client with completing a Season of Sharing application for financial assistance. This program also serves to reduce isolation and loneliness within the senior population by matching volunteers with clients to have scheduled phone calls (Telephone Reassurance) or homevisits (Friendly Visitors).
