A couple of times every week, Sarah Stanley makes a phone call to give someone a little lift during their day and to say, "Hi, I'm here. How are you?"

They talk about activities they have in common, and Sarah asks her questions about her day or what she used to do for Christmas to give her a friend to talk to.

It's part of Call N Connect, a new program through the Groton Senior Center, in which people volunteer to be a friendly caller to check in with people who may be isolated, said Tomi Stanley, a program supervisor at the center. The program is intended to keep seniors connected to the community through phone calls.
