The Tennessee Commission on Aging and Disability is encouraging members of local communities -- especially in the state’s smaller towns and rural areas -- to volunteer to help older citizens as COVID-19 advances across the country.
We recognize that older adults and caregivers are facing many hardships due to COVID-19. We want to show you care through conversation and make sure your needs are met during this very difficult time. Each week, we can have a volunteer call and check on you or a loved one.
