All of us at the Irish Senior Connect Listening Line hope that you’ve been having a great summer! Are you looking forward to connecting with the many Irish events and activities for seniors that are happening in and around Boston this Fall? If so, give us a call and we can help you connect!
Irish Senior Connect is a confidential listening and information service hosted by the Irish Pastoral Centre in Dorchester. Our trained volunteers, many of whom are seniors themselves, are available to take your calls on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 10 am to noon, and on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 2pm to 4pm. We’re here to listen about how you are feeling, how your summer’s been going, or hear about anything you might like to discuss.
If you need information about social events in the Irish community, we will provide a list from our calendar of upcoming events. Or, you might like to learn about what’s available in the local area for senior transportation services, home care, companionship or errand services. We can provide you with options to choose from. Working with the staff of the Irish Pastoral Centre, we can also let you know about ongoing events and activities being held by the IPC Senior Outreach Program.
During the past few weeks we have been contacting many elder services and Irish organizations throughout Boston and vicinity, as well as some of the Irish centers, services and groups throughout the rest of the State. We want to ensure that the word is out and about that Irish Senior Connect is available to help connect Irish and Irish American seniors with a supportive network of friends who are here to listen and provide support to make sure that no senior is feeling isolated or alone.
Please call us to say hello, have a chat, ask for event or services information, or to find out more about Irish Senior Connect, the listening line. Our volunteers are waiting to hear from you, and to listen!
