The Silver Cord Service provides vital friendship and security calls, assisting people to remain at home safely and improve quality of life.
Peace of mind starts with hello…
The Silver Cord Telephone Reassurance Service provides vital friendship and security calls, assisting people to remain at home safely (particularly people aged over 65, or aged over 50 if Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander, people with ongoing medical conditions and people with a disability or their carers).
This service is available to eligible clients Queensland-wide.
What type of calls can I receive?
- Security calls can be made seven days a week to ensure you are safe and well. The purpose of these calls is reassurance so that if the call goes unanswered, an activation process is commenced to ensure your wellbeing.
- Friendship calls help you stay connected in the community through regular calls from a like-minded volunteer. Our clients love to hear from their ‘phone friends’, and for some, it may be the only friendly conversation they have all week. Our caring callers love the chat too.
- Respite calls can be made after you return home from hospital, or while family and friends who normally check on you are away.
