Holzer Senior Outreach is a community program that reaches out to the “senior” segment of the community. The program helps isolated seniors with a reassuring phone call or visit to ensure they are safe and that they are taking their prescriptions as indicated. The program gives seniors and their loved ones a sense of security and well being. A loan library is also available with information on various health-related topics for seniors to access.
