Assessments may be requested to determine whether or not a consumer is best served in a long-term care facility or in his or her own home with community-based services. To request an assessment, please call 610-278-3601 to speak with an Enrollment Specialist.

Friendly Calls


The MCOSS Friendly Calls Program is a free program for seniors age 60 and older designed to increase socialization and an overall sense of well-being. Studies have shown that a lack of regular human interaction can lead to depression and isolation in seniors.  Sometimes, all it takes is a few minutes of friendly conversation for an older adult to be reminded that there is someone who cares about them and who is always willing to listen to their wants and needs.

Our Friendly Call Program will match a volunteer with a senior in need of companionship. The volunteer will call the senior according to the caller and senior’s schedules in order to enjoy conversation and friendship. This provides our seniors with regular opportunities for conversation and connection. If you are a senior or know a senior who would benefit from Friendly Calls, please complete our application and we will reach out to provide a match with a volunteer today!
