Teleconnect is a social telephone program delivered by trained volunteers of Alzheimer Society of Toronto

Teleconnect offers regularly scheduled outreach calls and/or check in calls, providing practical tips and a friendly listening ear with the goal to build connections with socially isolated caregivers and people living with dementia.

Teleconnect volunteers may provide social support, engage in recreational programs over the phone, answer questions, and share more about AST program and service recommendations.

Volunteers work closely with the AST staff to provide more intensive support as needed.
