Oregon Senior Peer Outreach

Weekdays and Weekends

Older Adult Telephone Support

“No Need To Go It Alone”

Oregon Senior Peer Outreach offers friendly weekly calls to older adults who may be experiencing loneliness, isolation, sadness, grief or loss. This year has been exceptionally challenging for seniors, and our trained senior peers are ready to share their hope and connection!

In every county of the state, we are offering “Holiday Connection Calls!” Our friendly trained senior peer supporters will provide a reliable weekly call to listen, learn and share with you through the fall and winter holidays.

Please let us know you would like our service by calling 1-833-736-4676

or

make a referral online using our Senior Outreach Online Referral Form

Senior Outreach Online Referral Form (CLICK HERE!!!)

If an older adult lives in an OSPO County (Washington, Clatsop, Columbia or Tillamook), we can offer long-term peer partnerships! These weekly calls have proven results of reducing loneliness.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Peers reach out to seniors that feel lonely.

The Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Telephone Service is now accepting referrals from ALL Oregon counties! This peer support program has been designed to increase the well-being of Oregon Seniors (55+) who live in the rural and frontier counties and has now expanded to serve all Oregon older adults who are suffering from COVID isolation. A team of experienced Senior Peer Support staff place weekly calls to connect with isolated Seniors to reduce the health impacts of loneliness and social isolation.

Program leadership is provided by CCS Staff members:

  • Sharon Kuehn, Oregon Warmline/Senior Peer Outreach Program Manager
  • Todd Trautner, Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Program Supervisor
  • Mark Fisher, Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Program Supervisor

Our team of experienced Senior Peer Supporters place weekly telephone calls to elders (55+) in Oregon who want a caring, compassionate friend to talk with. We understand some of the unique challenges of growing older and spending too much time alone. Let us provide a caring, personal connection!

Our goal is to connect with our participants, to listen, and to discover together how we can make sense of our experiences and to find and share hope. We understand that everyone has a unique worldview. Our Senior Peer Supporters are people who have experienced life challenges – including big feelings, voices, visions, trauma, and addictions. Now that we are moving into our golden years, we feel that there is no need to go it alone!

Referrals for persons who may benefit from the new service can be made by filling out the Referral Request form located below, or by calling us at:

1-833-736-4676 (1-833-SeniorOutreach)

Seniors who are 55+ and who:

  • Live in Oregon
  • who may feel isolated and lonely
  • and are interested in receiving weekly phone calls from another senior to build a mutually supportive relationship

Qualifying Seniors and/or persons with physical disabilities will be served. Once our service capacity is reached, a waiting list will be developed.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Warmline – IOA – Institute on Aging – The Friendship Line – 24/7 – Weekdays and Weekends @ Phone
Sep 27 all-day

THE FRIENDSHIP LINE

24 Hour Telephone Hotline/Warmline

800-971-0016

We support individuals who find connecting within the community challenging

The Institute on Aging’s 24-hour toll-free Friendship Line is the only accredited crisis line in the country for people aged 60 years and older, and adults living with disabilities. We also make on-going outreach calls to lonely older adults. While there are other organizations that respond to the needs of people who may be contemplating suicide, none provides the type of services that IOA’s Friendship Line offers to respond to the public health problem of suicide among the elderly. Knowing that older people do not contact traditional suicide prevention centers on a regular basis even if they are considering suicide, we created the only program nationwide that reaches out to lonely, depressed, isolated, frail and/or suicidal older adults. Our trained volunteers specialize in offering a caring ear and having a friendly conversation with depressed older adults.

The Friendship Line is both a crisis intervention hotline and a warmline for non-emergency emotional support calls. Founded in 1973 by Dr. Patrick Arbore, Director of IOA’s Center for Elderly Suicide Prevention, and accredited by the American Association of Suicidology, Friendship Line provides round-the-clock crisis support services including:

  • Providing emotional support
  • Elder abuse reporting
  • Well-being checks
  • Grief support through assistance and reassurance
  • Active suicide intervention
  • Information and referrals for isolated older adults, and adults living with disabilities

In addition to receiving incoming calls, Friendship Line also offers outreach to eligible callers. We connect with people on a regular basis, and help monitor their physical and mental health concerns. The call-out services act as an intervention to prevent suicide in the long term by improving the quality of life and connectedness of isolated callers. Any aging adult or person living with disabilities, who suffers from depression, loneliness, isolation, anxiousness, or may be thinking about death or suicide, can benefit from completely confidential phone calls with Friendship Line volunteers. Sometimes the road to happiness begins by simply saying hello to someone who cares.

Weekdays and Weekends

Older Adult Telephone Support

“No Need To Go It Alone”

Oregon Senior Peer Outreach offers friendly weekly calls to older adults who may be experiencing loneliness, isolation, sadness, grief or loss. This year has been exceptionally challenging for seniors, and our trained senior peers are ready to share their hope and connection!

In every county of the state, we are offering “Holiday Connection Calls!” Our friendly trained senior peer supporters will provide a reliable weekly call to listen, learn and share with you through the fall and winter holidays.

Please let us know you would like our service by calling 1-833-736-4676

or

make a referral online using our Senior Outreach Online Referral Form

Senior Outreach Online Referral Form (CLICK HERE!!!)

If an older adult lives in an OSPO County (Washington, Clatsop, Columbia or Tillamook), we can offer long-term peer partnerships! These weekly calls have proven results of reducing loneliness.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Peers reach out to seniors that feel lonely.

The Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Telephone Service is now accepting referrals from ALL Oregon counties! This peer support program has been designed to increase the well-being of Oregon Seniors (55+) who live in the rural and frontier counties and has now expanded to serve all Oregon older adults who are suffering from COVID isolation. A team of experienced Senior Peer Support staff place weekly calls to connect with isolated Seniors to reduce the health impacts of loneliness and social isolation.

Program leadership is provided by CCS Staff members:

  • Sharon Kuehn, Oregon Warmline/Senior Peer Outreach Program Manager
  • Todd Trautner, Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Program Supervisor
  • Mark Fisher, Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Program Supervisor

Our team of experienced Senior Peer Supporters place weekly telephone calls to elders (55+) in Oregon who want a caring, compassionate friend to talk with. We understand some of the unique challenges of growing older and spending too much time alone. Let us provide a caring, personal connection!

Our goal is to connect with our participants, to listen, and to discover together how we can make sense of our experiences and to find and share hope. We understand that everyone has a unique worldview. Our Senior Peer Supporters are people who have experienced life challenges – including big feelings, voices, visions, trauma, and addictions. Now that we are moving into our golden years, we feel that there is no need to go it alone!

Referrals for persons who may benefit from the new service can be made by filling out the Referral Request form located below, or by calling us at:

1-833-736-4676 (1-833-SeniorOutreach)

Seniors who are 55+ and who:

  • Live in Oregon
  • who may feel isolated and lonely
  • and are interested in receiving weekly phone calls from another senior to build a mutually supportive relationship

Qualifying Seniors and/or persons with physical disabilities will be served. Once our service capacity is reached, a waiting list will be developed.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Warmline – IOA – Institute on Aging – The Friendship Line – 24/7 – Weekdays and Weekends @ Phone

THE FRIENDSHIP LINE

24 Hour Telephone Hotline/Warmline

800-971-0016

We support individuals who find connecting within the community challenging

The Institute on Aging’s 24-hour toll-free Friendship Line is the only accredited crisis line in the country for people aged 60 years and older, and adults living with disabilities. We also make on-going outreach calls to lonely older adults. While there are other organizations that respond to the needs of people who may be contemplating suicide, none provides the type of services that IOA’s Friendship Line offers to respond to the public health problem of suicide among the elderly. Knowing that older people do not contact traditional suicide prevention centers on a regular basis even if they are considering suicide, we created the only program nationwide that reaches out to lonely, depressed, isolated, frail and/or suicidal older adults. Our trained volunteers specialize in offering a caring ear and having a friendly conversation with depressed older adults.

The Friendship Line is both a crisis intervention hotline and a warmline for non-emergency emotional support calls. Founded in 1973 by Dr. Patrick Arbore, Director of IOA’s Center for Elderly Suicide Prevention, and accredited by the American Association of Suicidology, Friendship Line provides round-the-clock crisis support services including:

  • Providing emotional support
  • Elder abuse reporting
  • Well-being checks
  • Grief support through assistance and reassurance
  • Active suicide intervention
  • Information and referrals for isolated older adults, and adults living with disabilities

In addition to receiving incoming calls, Friendship Line also offers outreach to eligible callers. We connect with people on a regular basis, and help monitor their physical and mental health concerns. The call-out services act as an intervention to prevent suicide in the long term by improving the quality of life and connectedness of isolated callers. Any aging adult or person living with disabilities, who suffers from depression, loneliness, isolation, anxiousness, or may be thinking about death or suicide, can benefit from completely confidential phone calls with Friendship Line volunteers. Sometimes the road to happiness begins by simply saying hello to someone who cares.

Oregon Senior Peer Outreach

Weekdays and Weekends

Older Adult Telephone Support

“No Need To Go It Alone”

Oregon Senior Peer Outreach offers friendly weekly calls to older adults who may be experiencing loneliness, isolation, sadness, grief or loss. This year has been exceptionally challenging for seniors, and our trained senior peers are ready to share their hope and connection!

In every county of the state, we are offering “Holiday Connection Calls!” Our friendly trained senior peer supporters will provide a reliable weekly call to listen, learn and share with you through the fall and winter holidays.

Please let us know you would like our service by calling 1-833-736-4676

or

make a referral online using our Senior Outreach Online Referral Form

Senior Outreach Online Referral Form (CLICK HERE!!!)

If an older adult lives in an OSPO County (Washington, Clatsop, Columbia or Tillamook), we can offer long-term peer partnerships! These weekly calls have proven results of reducing loneliness.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Peers reach out to seniors that feel lonely.

The Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Telephone Service is now accepting referrals from ALL Oregon counties! This peer support program has been designed to increase the well-being of Oregon Seniors (55+) who live in the rural and frontier counties and has now expanded to serve all Oregon older adults who are suffering from COVID isolation. A team of experienced Senior Peer Support staff place weekly calls to connect with isolated Seniors to reduce the health impacts of loneliness and social isolation.

Program leadership is provided by CCS Staff members:

  • Sharon Kuehn, Oregon Warmline/Senior Peer Outreach Program Manager
  • Todd Trautner, Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Program Supervisor
  • Mark Fisher, Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Program Supervisor

Our team of experienced Senior Peer Supporters place weekly telephone calls to elders (55+) in Oregon who want a caring, compassionate friend to talk with. We understand some of the unique challenges of growing older and spending too much time alone. Let us provide a caring, personal connection!

Our goal is to connect with our participants, to listen, and to discover together how we can make sense of our experiences and to find and share hope. We understand that everyone has a unique worldview. Our Senior Peer Supporters are people who have experienced life challenges – including big feelings, voices, visions, trauma, and addictions. Now that we are moving into our golden years, we feel that there is no need to go it alone!

Referrals for persons who may benefit from the new service can be made by filling out the Referral Request form located below, or by calling us at:

1-833-736-4676 (1-833-SeniorOutreach)

Seniors who are 55+ and who:

  • Live in Oregon
  • who may feel isolated and lonely
  • and are interested in receiving weekly phone calls from another senior to build a mutually supportive relationship

Qualifying Seniors and/or persons with physical disabilities will be served. Once our service capacity is reached, a waiting list will be developed.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Oct 5 all-day

THE FRIENDSHIP LINE

24 Hour Telephone Hotline/Warmline

800-971-0016

We support individuals who find connecting within the community challenging

The Institute on Aging’s 24-hour toll-free Friendship Line is the only accredited crisis line in the country for people aged 60 years and older, and adults living with disabilities. We also make on-going outreach calls to lonely older adults. While there are other organizations that respond to the needs of people who may be contemplating suicide, none provides the type of services that IOA’s Friendship Line offers to respond to the public health problem of suicide among the elderly. Knowing that older people do not contact traditional suicide prevention centers on a regular basis even if they are considering suicide, we created the only program nationwide that reaches out to lonely, depressed, isolated, frail and/or suicidal older adults. Our trained volunteers specialize in offering a caring ear and having a friendly conversation with depressed older adults.

The Friendship Line is both a crisis intervention hotline and a warmline for non-emergency emotional support calls. Founded in 1973 by Dr. Patrick Arbore, Director of IOA’s Center for Elderly Suicide Prevention, and accredited by the American Association of Suicidology, Friendship Line provides round-the-clock crisis support services including:

  • Providing emotional support
  • Elder abuse reporting
  • Well-being checks
  • Grief support through assistance and reassurance
  • Active suicide intervention
  • Information and referrals for isolated older adults, and adults living with disabilities

In addition to receiving incoming calls, Friendship Line also offers outreach to eligible callers. We connect with people on a regular basis, and help monitor their physical and mental health concerns. The call-out services act as an intervention to prevent suicide in the long term by improving the quality of life and connectedness of isolated callers. Any aging adult or person living with disabilities, who suffers from depression, loneliness, isolation, anxiousness, or may be thinking about death or suicide, can benefit from completely confidential phone calls with Friendship Line volunteers. Sometimes the road to happiness begins by simply saying hello to someone who cares.

Oregon Senior Peer Outreach

Weekdays and Weekends

Older Adult Telephone Support

“No Need To Go It Alone”

Oregon Senior Peer Outreach offers friendly weekly calls to older adults who may be experiencing loneliness, isolation, sadness, grief or loss. This year has been exceptionally challenging for seniors, and our trained senior peers are ready to share their hope and connection!

In every county of the state, we are offering “Holiday Connection Calls!” Our friendly trained senior peer supporters will provide a reliable weekly call to listen, learn and share with you through the fall and winter holidays.

Please let us know you would like our service by calling 1-833-736-4676

or

make a referral online using our Senior Outreach Online Referral Form

Senior Outreach Online Referral Form (CLICK HERE!!!)

If an older adult lives in an OSPO County (Washington, Clatsop, Columbia or Tillamook), we can offer long-term peer partnerships! These weekly calls have proven results of reducing loneliness.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Peers reach out to seniors that feel lonely.

The Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Telephone Service is now accepting referrals from ALL Oregon counties! This peer support program has been designed to increase the well-being of Oregon Seniors (55+) who live in the rural and frontier counties and has now expanded to serve all Oregon older adults who are suffering from COVID isolation. A team of experienced Senior Peer Support staff place weekly calls to connect with isolated Seniors to reduce the health impacts of loneliness and social isolation.

Program leadership is provided by CCS Staff members:

  • Sharon Kuehn, Oregon Warmline/Senior Peer Outreach Program Manager
  • Todd Trautner, Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Program Supervisor
  • Mark Fisher, Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Program Supervisor

Our team of experienced Senior Peer Supporters place weekly telephone calls to elders (55+) in Oregon who want a caring, compassionate friend to talk with. We understand some of the unique challenges of growing older and spending too much time alone. Let us provide a caring, personal connection!

Our goal is to connect with our participants, to listen, and to discover together how we can make sense of our experiences and to find and share hope. We understand that everyone has a unique worldview. Our Senior Peer Supporters are people who have experienced life challenges – including big feelings, voices, visions, trauma, and addictions. Now that we are moving into our golden years, we feel that there is no need to go it alone!

Referrals for persons who may benefit from the new service can be made by filling out the Referral Request form located below, or by calling us at:

1-833-736-4676 (1-833-SeniorOutreach)

Seniors who are 55+ and who:

  • Live in Oregon
  • who may feel isolated and lonely
  • and are interested in receiving weekly phone calls from another senior to build a mutually supportive relationship

Qualifying Seniors and/or persons with physical disabilities will be served. Once our service capacity is reached, a waiting list will be developed.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Warmline – IOA – Institute on Aging – The Friendship Line – 24/7 – Weekdays and Weekends @ Phone
Oct 9 all-day

THE FRIENDSHIP LINE

24 Hour Telephone Hotline/Warmline

800-971-0016

We support individuals who find connecting within the community challenging

The Institute on Aging’s 24-hour toll-free Friendship Line is the only accredited crisis line in the country for people aged 60 years and older, and adults living with disabilities. We also make on-going outreach calls to lonely older adults. While there are other organizations that respond to the needs of people who may be contemplating suicide, none provides the type of services that IOA’s Friendship Line offers to respond to the public health problem of suicide among the elderly. Knowing that older people do not contact traditional suicide prevention centers on a regular basis even if they are considering suicide, we created the only program nationwide that reaches out to lonely, depressed, isolated, frail and/or suicidal older adults. Our trained volunteers specialize in offering a caring ear and having a friendly conversation with depressed older adults.

The Friendship Line is both a crisis intervention hotline and a warmline for non-emergency emotional support calls. Founded in 1973 by Dr. Patrick Arbore, Director of IOA’s Center for Elderly Suicide Prevention, and accredited by the American Association of Suicidology, Friendship Line provides round-the-clock crisis support services including:

  • Providing emotional support
  • Elder abuse reporting
  • Well-being checks
  • Grief support through assistance and reassurance
  • Active suicide intervention
  • Information and referrals for isolated older adults, and adults living with disabilities

In addition to receiving incoming calls, Friendship Line also offers outreach to eligible callers. We connect with people on a regular basis, and help monitor their physical and mental health concerns. The call-out services act as an intervention to prevent suicide in the long term by improving the quality of life and connectedness of isolated callers. Any aging adult or person living with disabilities, who suffers from depression, loneliness, isolation, anxiousness, or may be thinking about death or suicide, can benefit from completely confidential phone calls with Friendship Line volunteers. Sometimes the road to happiness begins by simply saying hello to someone who cares.

A team of experienced Senior Peer Support staff place weekly calls to connect with isolated Seniors to reduce the health impacts of loneliness and social isolation.

Program leadership is provided by CCS Staff members:

  • Sharon Kuehn, Oregon Warmline/Senior Peer Outreach Program Manager
  • Todd Trautner, Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Program Supervisor
  • Mark Fisher, Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Program Supervisor

Our team of experienced Senior Peer Supporters place weekly telephone calls to elders (55+) in Oregon who want a caring, compassionate friend to talk with. We understand some of the unique challenges of growing older and spending too much time alone. Let us provide a caring, personal connection!

Our goal is to connect with our participants, to listen, and to discover together how we can make sense of our experiences and to find and share hope. We understand that everyone has a unique worldview. Our Senior Peer Supporters are people who have experienced life challenges – including big feelings, voices, visions, trauma, and addictions. Now that we are moving into our golden years, we feel that there is no need to go it alone!

Referrals for persons who may benefit from the new service can be made by filling out the Referral Request form located below, or by calling us at:

1-833-736-4676 (1-833-SeniorOutreach)

Seniors who are 55+ and who:

  • Live in Oregon
  • who may feel isolated and lonely
  • and are interested in receiving weekly phone calls from another senior to build a mutually supportive relationship

Qualifying Seniors and/or persons with physical disabilities will be served. Once our service capacity is reached, a waiting list will be developed.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Warmline – IOA – Institute on Aging – The Friendship Line – 24/7 – Weekdays and Weekends @ Phone
Oct 13 all-day

THE FRIENDSHIP LINE

24 Hour Telephone Hotline/Warmline

800-971-0016

We support individuals who find connecting within the community challenging

The Institute on Aging’s 24-hour toll-free Friendship Line is the only accredited crisis line in the country for people aged 60 years and older, and adults living with disabilities. We also make on-going outreach calls to lonely older adults. While there are other organizations that respond to the needs of people who may be contemplating suicide, none provides the type of services that IOA’s Friendship Line offers to respond to the public health problem of suicide among the elderly. Knowing that older people do not contact traditional suicide prevention centers on a regular basis even if they are considering suicide, we created the only program nationwide that reaches out to lonely, depressed, isolated, frail and/or suicidal older adults. Our trained volunteers specialize in offering a caring ear and having a friendly conversation with depressed older adults.

The Friendship Line is both a crisis intervention hotline and a warmline for non-emergency emotional support calls. Founded in 1973 by Dr. Patrick Arbore, Director of IOA’s Center for Elderly Suicide Prevention, and accredited by the American Association of Suicidology, Friendship Line provides round-the-clock crisis support services including:

  • Providing emotional support
  • Elder abuse reporting
  • Well-being checks
  • Grief support through assistance and reassurance
  • Active suicide intervention
  • Information and referrals for isolated older adults, and adults living with disabilities

In addition to receiving incoming calls, Friendship Line also offers outreach to eligible callers. We connect with people on a regular basis, and help monitor their physical and mental health concerns. The call-out services act as an intervention to prevent suicide in the long term by improving the quality of life and connectedness of isolated callers. Any aging adult or person living with disabilities, who suffers from depression, loneliness, isolation, anxiousness, or may be thinking about death or suicide, can benefit from completely confidential phone calls with Friendship Line volunteers. Sometimes the road to happiness begins by simply saying hello to someone who cares.

Warmline – IOA – Institute on Aging – The Friendship Line – 24/7 – Weekdays and Weekends @ Phone
Oct 17 all-day

THE FRIENDSHIP LINE

24 Hour Telephone Hotline/Warmline

800-971-0016

We support individuals who find connecting within the community challenging

The Institute on Aging’s 24-hour toll-free Friendship Line is the only accredited crisis line in the country for people aged 60 years and older, and adults living with disabilities. We also make on-going outreach calls to lonely older adults. While there are other organizations that respond to the needs of people who may be contemplating suicide, none provides the type of services that IOA’s Friendship Line offers to respond to the public health problem of suicide among the elderly. Knowing that older people do not contact traditional suicide prevention centers on a regular basis even if they are considering suicide, we created the only program nationwide that reaches out to lonely, depressed, isolated, frail and/or suicidal older adults. Our trained volunteers specialize in offering a caring ear and having a friendly conversation with depressed older adults.

The Friendship Line is both a crisis intervention hotline and a warmline for non-emergency emotional support calls. Founded in 1973 by Dr. Patrick Arbore, Director of IOA’s Center for Elderly Suicide Prevention, and accredited by the American Association of Suicidology, Friendship Line provides round-the-clock crisis support services including:

  • Providing emotional support
  • Elder abuse reporting
  • Well-being checks
  • Grief support through assistance and reassurance
  • Active suicide intervention
  • Information and referrals for isolated older adults, and adults living with disabilities

In addition to receiving incoming calls, Friendship Line also offers outreach to eligible callers. We connect with people on a regular basis, and help monitor their physical and mental health concerns. The call-out services act as an intervention to prevent suicide in the long term by improving the quality of life and connectedness of isolated callers. Any aging adult or person living with disabilities, who suffers from depression, loneliness, isolation, anxiousness, or may be thinking about death or suicide, can benefit from completely confidential phone calls with Friendship Line volunteers. Sometimes the road to happiness begins by simply saying hello to someone who cares.

Older Adult Telephone Support

“No Need To Go It Alone”

Oregon Senior Peer Outreach offers friendly weekly calls to older adults who may be experiencing loneliness, isolation, sadness, grief or loss. This year has been exceptionally challenging for seniors, and our trained senior peers are ready to share their hope and connection!

In every county of the state, we are offering “Holiday Connection Calls!” Our friendly trained senior peer supporters will provide a reliable weekly call to listen, learn and share with you through the fall and winter holidays.

Please let us know you would like our service by calling 1-833-736-4676

or

make a referral online using our Senior Outreach Online Referral Form

Senior Outreach Online Referral Form (CLICK HERE!!!)

If an older adult lives in an OSPO County (Washington, Clatsop, Columbia or Tillamook), we can offer long-term peer partnerships! These weekly calls have proven results of reducing loneliness.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Peers reach out to seniors that feel lonely.

The Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Telephone Service is now accepting referrals from ALL Oregon counties! This peer support program has been designed to increase the well-being of Oregon Seniors (55+) who live in the rural and frontier counties and has now expanded to serve all Oregon older adults who are suffering from COVID isolation. A team of experienced Senior Peer Support staff place weekly calls to connect with isolated Seniors to reduce the health impacts of loneliness and social isolation.

Program leadership is provided by CCS Staff members:

  • Sharon Kuehn, Oregon Warmline/Senior Peer Outreach Program Manager
  • Todd Trautner, Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Program Supervisor
  • Mark Fisher, Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Program Supervisor

Our team of experienced Senior Peer Supporters place weekly telephone calls to elders (55+) in Oregon who want a caring, compassionate friend to talk with. We understand some of the unique challenges of growing older and spending too much time alone. Let us provide a caring, personal connection!

Our goal is to connect with our participants, to listen, and to discover together how we can make sense of our experiences and to find and share hope. We understand that everyone has a unique worldview. Our Senior Peer Supporters are people who have experienced life challenges – including big feelings, voices, visions, trauma, and addictions. Now that we are moving into our golden years, we feel that there is no need to go it alone!

While there are other organizations that respond to the needs of people who may be contemplating suicide, none provides the type of services that IOA’s Friendship Line offers to respond to the public health problem of suicide among the elderly. Knowing that older people do not contact traditional suicide prevention centers on a regular basis even if they are considering suicide, we created the only program nationwide that reaches out to lonely, depressed, isolated, frail and/or suicidal older adults. Our trained volunteers specialize in offering a caring ear and having a friendly conversation with depressed older adults.

The Friendship Line is both a crisis intervention hotline and a warmline for non-emergency emotional support calls. Founded in 1973 by Dr. Patrick Arbore, Director of IOA’s Center for Elderly Suicide Prevention, and accredited by the American Association of Suicidology, Friendship Line provides round-the-clock crisis support services including:

  • Providing emotional support
  • Elder abuse reporting
  • Well-being checks
  • Grief support through assistance and reassurance
  • Active suicide intervention
  • Information and referrals for isolated older adults, and adults living with disabilities

In addition to receiving incoming calls, Friendship Line also offers outreach to eligible callers. We connect with people on a regular basis, and help monitor their physical and mental health concerns. The call-out services act as an intervention to prevent suicide in the long term by improving the quality of life and connectedness of isolated callers. Any aging adult or person living with disabilities, who suffers from depression, loneliness, isolation, anxiousness, or may be thinking about death or suicide, can benefit from completely confidential phone calls with Friendship Line volunteers. Sometimes the road to happiness begins by simply saying hello to someone who cares.

Older Adult Telephone Support

“No Need To Go It Alone”

Oregon Senior Peer Outreach offers friendly weekly calls to older adults who may be experiencing loneliness, isolation, sadness, grief or loss. This year has been exceptionally challenging for seniors, and our trained senior peers are ready to share their hope and connection!

In every county of the state, we are offering “Holiday Connection Calls!” Our friendly trained senior peer supporters will provide a reliable weekly call to listen, learn and share with you through the fall and winter holidays.

Please let us know you would like our service by calling 1-833-736-4676

or

make a referral online using our Senior Outreach Online Referral Form

Senior Outreach Online Referral Form (CLICK HERE!!!)

If an older adult lives in an OSPO County (Washington, Clatsop, Columbia or Tillamook), we can offer long-term peer partnerships! These weekly calls have proven results of reducing loneliness.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Peers reach out to seniors that feel lonely.

The Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Telephone Service is now accepting referrals from ALL Oregon counties! This peer support program has been designed to increase the well-being of Oregon Seniors (55+) who live in the rural and frontier counties and has now expanded to serve all Oregon older adults who are suffering from COVID isolation. A team of experienced Senior Peer Support staff place weekly calls to connect with isolated Seniors to reduce the health impacts of loneliness and social isolation.

Program leadership is provided by CCS Staff members:

  • Sharon Kuehn, Oregon Warmline/Senior Peer Outreach Program Manager
  • Todd Trautner, Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Program Supervisor
  • Mark Fisher, Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Program Supervisor

Our team of experienced Senior Peer Supporters place weekly telephone calls to elders (55+) in Oregon who want a caring, compassionate friend to talk with. We understand some of the unique challenges of growing older and spending too much time alone. Let us provide a caring, personal connection!

Our goal is to connect with our participants, to listen, and to discover together how we can make sense of our experiences and to find and share hope. We understand that everyone has a unique worldview. Our Senior Peer Supporters are people who have experienced life challenges – including big feelings, voices, visions, trauma, and addictions. Now that we are moving into our golden years, we feel that there is no need to go it alone!

Referrals for persons who may benefit from the new service can be made by filling out the Referral Request form located below, or by calling us at:

1-833-736-4676 (1-833-SeniorOutreach)

Seniors who are 55+ and who:

  • Live in Oregon
  • who may feel isolated and lonely
  • and are interested in receiving weekly phone calls from another senior to build a mutually supportive relationship

Qualifying Seniors and/or persons with physical disabilities will be served. Once our service capacity is reached, a waiting list will be developed.

We look forward to hearing from you!
