CALL 2 CARE
Call2care was created to create meaningful intergenerational social relationships between older adults and students as a way of overcoming ageism and social isolation.
We are seeking older adults and Georgia Southern University students to participate bi-weekly, 20-minute phone conversations
Students are trained and complete a criminal background check.
The Call2Care is led by a team of Georgia Southern University Faculty and Staff.
