Welcome to Tele Smiles.
Our Tele Smiles Angels are here to provide compassionate telephone companionship for a loved one - elderly parent, sibling or relative.
Whether they are living alone, caring for an ailing spouse or feeling isolated and insecure during a hospital stay – Tele Smiles is a service that can keep your loved one connected and feeling more confident.
Why Tele Smiles?
Research shows that social support networks are very important in reducing the risk of depression for people aged 65 and older. Social interaction is important for healthy aging and can also be cognitively stimulating to help preserve their cognitive abilities.
Even though you call, you visit, and you do your best to stay in touch - loneliness, boredom and feelings of isolation many times remain. Additional contact and cheerful telephone conversation from a Tele Smiles Angel can help fill the gap and add a bit of sunshine into your loved one's day.
You can’t always be there. Let Tele Smiles help. We’re not a replacement - we’re another level of caregiver support.
