Hunterdon Helpline has been offering Seniors a variety of programs for many years. This division has evolved to include the staples – Telephone Reassurance and the Friendly Visitor Program – and new services: CHOICES for Seniors Directory and CELS. The goals  of  all Helpline’s Senior programs and services is to provide independence and the opportunity to stay living in one’s own home.

Telephone Reassurance

Providing daily check-ins, a client is called once or several times a day to make sure all is well, medicine is taken, meals are not forgotten Sometimes just a friendly chat is all that is needed to brighten someone’s otherwise, lonely day.

Friendly Visitors

This program is available to Hunterdon  County residents 60 years  of age and older, who are socially and/or geographically isolated.  Volunteer visitors, after training and background checks, are matched according to like interests and scheduling needs of the Senior.
