Be a Phone Pal

The Gift Of Your Time

Many of us are experiencing the loss of the usual traditions and activities associated with the holiday season. The Headwater’s Phone Pal Program gives the gift of time and compassion to people who are elderly and impacted by COVID-19. The value of a phone call is a wonderful reminder that one is part of a caring community.

A Caring Community

Headwaters established the Phone Pal Program in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic. We are excited to announce that we received a grant from the Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) for Coronavirus Relief Funds to expand our operation of the Phone Pal Program for the month of December. Many individuals, especially those who are elderly, have experienced a lengthy period of isolation from other people because of COVID-19. Our program matches older adults with people who want to make a difference, one person at a time. This is not a professional service.

How Does it Work?

Participants will be asked what days and times are best for phone calls. They will also be asked if they have special interests or other preferences in a phone pal. The phone pal program includes availability for evenings and weekends. Once a phone pal is assigned to an interested participant, they will continue to be the phone pal for the participant for subsequent calls. This will provide continuity and the opportunity for the phone pal relationship to be successful. Phone call duration may vary from 30 minutes to 1 hour. All information discussed during the phone call will be kept confidential.
