New Factor Health study finds empathy-focused phone calls may improve depression
A new Factor Health study, funded in part by EHF with Dell Medical School and Meals on Wheels of Central Texas reveals that empathy-focused “Sunshine Calls” can significantly improve depression, contributing to healthier lives.
These brief weekly calls offer emotional support and encouragement. Trained volunteers provide empathetic listening during these calls to those receiving Meals on Wheels services.
The study showed a 28% reduction in depression symptoms for recipients.
