TOMS RIVER, N.J. - JerseyDesk -- CONTACT of Ocean & Monmouth Counties (CONTACT) is pleased to announce the launch of its new CONTACT Cares Reassurance Calling Program, an initiative aimed at providing regular check-in calls to seniors in Ocean County. This program, which is partially funded by a grant from the Ocean County Board of Commissioners, seeks to offer both social interaction and wellness checks for elderly residents, helping to alleviate feelings of isolation and ensuring their well-being.

The CONTACT Cares Reassurance Calling Program is designed to support seniors who may be feeling lonely or disconnected. At designated times, participants receive friendly calls from trained volunteers, offering a much-needed touchpoint of socialization. These calls not only provide companionship but also serve as a wellness check, giving peace of mind to both the seniors and their loved ones.

"We are excited to offer this vital service to our community," said Kim Santora, Executive Director of CONTACT. "Our goal is to ensure that our seniors feel connected and cared for. This program is an extension of our commitment to provide support and resources to those in need."
