Telephone contact

Telecross is a service that provides the elderly and housebound with a reassuring daily phone call to ensure that they are safe and well. If this call goes unanswered an agreed emergency procedure will be activated and help arranged if necessary. Telecross calls are made by trained volunteers daily at an agreed time that suits the recipient of the call. Telecross provides peace of mind to clients and their families, and allows the elderly and housebound to maintain their independence for as long as possibles. Telecross also has the added benefit of providing a degree of companionship and contributes to a decrease in the sense of isolation many people experience.
