Being deaf - a phone isn’t much help - is there any other contact way? Like text, web chat....?

Thanks Jessica, This information will be a good resource for some individuals. Thanks for taking the time to post this.

Thanks for passing this info along. As you say, even if it helps only one person it’s worth it. Plus who knows who will need it down the line.

It’s important information and it’s appreciated.

Thats a very nice service Jessica, thanks for sharing it. Our local senior center has volunteers doing the same thing in our community. I already volunteered to make contact calls for them as needed. (Some people like prayers as well). Take care💟.
