Phone pals helping seniors through pandemic
A new collaborative project has been developed by the Branch County Commission on Aging, Area Agency on Aging 3C, and Pines Behavioral Health to ensure senior citizens who live in Branch County have a listening ear when it comes to being stuck at home during the pandemic. Phone Pals is a way for older adults to connect with a friendly person who will listen sincerely and offer support on a regular basis. The person on the other end of the line is a Pines Behavioral Health employee.
Phone Pals is a free service and any Branch County senior can call it at 517-227-4933.
