What we do

Age Trust Befriending is a daily telephone befriending service from the The Age Related Diseases and Health Trust for those who are socially isolated that works by carefully assigning each user with their own telephone befriender who provides friendly conversation and companionship on a regular basis over a period of time. The topics of discussion can range from a simple welfare check and medication reminder, to a discussion about their day, the weather or the news.

Our team of trained and vetted phone friends will offer daily social contact, welfare checks, medication management and general promotion of well-being to your loved ones in the comfort of their own home. Many care support services are available usually after a problem has arisen. Age Trust Befriending provides a proactive telephone friendship service so as soon as anything was to go wrong you would be the first to find out.
