Senior Companion Program

Through our Senior Companion Program, volunteers provide seniors one-on-one interaction, helping to ease loneliness, boost self-esteem, solve problems and build friendships along the way.

Volunteers perform a variety of helpful tasks including light meal preparation, housecleaning, transportation and respite care, allowing more of our seniors to continue living independently in their own homes. Volunteers do not serve as home health aides, psychologists, social workers, personal drivers or domestics.

It’s no surprise that 95 percent of our clients and their families reported feeling less lonely and received more social support and social ties since joining the program.
