There are many communities that provide telephone reassurance programs (both volunteer based or automatic calling programs).

Also, if you are a Massachusetts based community and/or organization that provides a Telephone Reassurance program and would like to be listed here (its free!), please contact us.
If your community does not already have a Telephone Reassurance program, DSC offers individuals the ability to subscribe to our call reassurance program.
