LBFE launces drop-in Coffee Chat for older adults
Little Brothers – Friends of the Elderly (LBFE) has launched Coffee Talk, a drop-in phone chat line that connects older adults with volunteers for friendly conversation and access to resources to support their overall wellbeing. Outstate callers are encouraged to use the toll-free number 877-238-2282 and those in the Twin Cities metro can dial 612-746-0728.
Callers to the free Coffee Talk drop-in line can remain anonymous and there is no need to register or make an appointment. Callers are welcome to call as often as they’d like Monday-Friday, 8 am-noon. As the program expands throughout the state, hours will be adjusted to accommodate increased call volume.
Coffee Talk will be staffed by volunteers who understand the older adult population’s unique needs and challenges. With words of encouragement and an understanding ear, these volunteers will provide callers with friendly conversation and access to crucial information, support resources, and opportunities to connect with others through other LBFE programs.
