The Senior Companion Program (SCP) is actively looking for volunteers…

We are starting to see an increase in the number of volunteers in the Senior Companion Program. This is very exciting for us. We have welcomed one new volunteer in Grayson County and three new volunteers in Marion County. We are in the process of bringing on a new volunteer in Nelson County just this week and should be starting the process with a new volunteer in Hardin County next week.
We are very excited to get to introduce the program to new volunteers and work with them as they bring so much assistance to the frail elderly members of our communities. The bonds that these seniors are creating are so important to the people they assist and to the families of those clients.
We will also be having our in-service training sessions starting again in February. This is an important opportunity for our volunteers to share with one another their blessings and struggles that they encounter in their community service. They offer support, advice, and friendships to one another. Watching these relationships grow is something that we truly enjoy. If you would like to make new friends in our community and be of assistance to an elderly person or persons who is trying to maintain their independence in their home, please contact us here at The Senior Companion Program. You can reach our director at (270) 270-692-2136 ext. 601 or (270) 402-7194 or email
