A phone call each day to check you are ok

Friday, August 24, 2018

Red Cross Norfolk Island can provide you with a daily telephone call to check on your wellbeing, through a service known as Telecross. This call provides peace of mind if you are at risk of an accident or illness,  that may go unnoticed for a period of time.

The Red Cross volunteer will check to see that you are well, and provide a friendly voice to wake up to each day.

Telecross is for people that live alone and are a risk of an accident. In particular those who are frail and aged, are housebound or are recovering from an illness or accident. Telecross is also available to carers. When family and carers are away, Telecross can be used on a temporary basis.

A friendly volunteer makes a call each morning year round. If the call is not answered, Red Cross will take action to make sure the person is okay. The calls provide reassurance, as well as help to maintain independence.

For more information about accessing Telecross as a client, please phone Julie on 22974. The Telecross service is provided by Red Cross groups throughout Australia.
