Nancy Simpson is passionate about the benefits of the telephone reassurance program, which began at the Gainesville Senior Life Center even before she started there 23 years ago. The program, which Simpson said is a “blessing” for everyone involved, recruits volunteers to call homebound seniors in Hall County and check on their welfare. She said some seniors don’t have anyone to visit or check on them.
