Good Day Calls

A daily call providing older people and their families security and support

Many older people live alone and may not have regular visitors. Some feel lonely from time to time and worry that no one will notice if they take ill or are not up and about in the morning. Many don’t want their family to worry about them.

Our Good Day Call service is a daily call, 365 days a year, to have a chat and check on the welfare of an older person. Over time, we hope to become good friends on the phone, chatting about the day and the world, and being there to give support and to arrange assistance if needed.

The service costs £50 per month payable by direct debit. Where the payee lives overseas we can arrange an annual payment of £600 in advance by credit card.
