Telecross volunteers are rostered to make a brief phone call between 7am – 9:30am to check on the wellbeing of clients who are isolated and are at a risk of accident or illness that may go unnoticed. Volunteers keep records of all the calls made and ensuring the confidentiality of clients is maintained at all times.
