ProMedica and the Area Office on Aging (AOoA) have partnered to combat social isolation in seniors with the recently launched Neighbors Calling Neighbors Program. Social isolation can bring on serious health issues, and it can become increasingly severe in the winter months. With this program, people can receive free weekly phone calls from AOoA volunteers to help get them past the feelings of isolation that can lead to depression.
