Give Your Pal a Call

Would it make your life easier if you had someone to help with chores? To take you grocery shopping? Set up your cell phone?

A Papa Pal is happy to do any (or all) of those tasks. They can even come over to play a board game or take a walk. And it’s all available at no cost through your BCBSRI Medicare Advantage Plan.

    Chat, watch a movie, exercise
  • House needs
    Light cleaning, meal prep, organizing, pet help
  • Transportation
    Doctors appointments, errands, grocery/pharmacy shopping
  • Technology help

Your safety is very important to us, and all Papa Pals are carefully screened to make sure they are a good fit for the Papa community.
