About the Program
Started as an offshoot of the GoldenTALK hotline service, we provide our seniors with Love Coaching, which includes the opportunity for callers to speak with a real person surrounding difficult topics during challenging moments in their life.
Our Love Coaches are qualified to speak with senior to discuss the topics not excluding:
- Issues related to alcoholism
- Issues related to hoarding
- Mourning from a lost companion or spouse
- Feelings of social isolation
- Feelings of general anxiety
- Feelings of general depression
If a caller is determined to need additional assistance outside that which our our Love Coaches are qualified to discuss, they will refer the caller to a mental health service to obtain the help he or she needs. Read the profiles of our Love Coaches below for more information.
