Senior Loneliness Line
The Senior Loneliness Line is a statewide partnership between Lines for Life and Oregon Health Authority.
Their free statewide call service is for Oregonians 55 and older. Their team of volunteers and staff are specially trained in working with older adults, and we can provide ongoing support, connect you with resources or just listen. Your information is completely confidential and no one will follow up with you unless you request a call.
Any aging adult who is experiencing loneliness, isolation, depression or anxiety can benefit from a confidential phone call with our Senior Loneliness specialists. Sometimes knowing there is someone who cares and wants to listen can be of great help.
