Senior Companion's efforts are aimed at helping others live as fully and independently as possible. They are focused on easing the loneliness by visiting and talking about old times, playing a game of cards, or just everyday living things that a senior might need some help with.


Senior Companion volunteers provide companionship and assistance to frail elderly, mental health clients, assisted living home residents, nursing home residents, foster care residents, and adult day centers. Senior companions are 55+ years of age. Volunteers work 15-20 hours a week and receive benefits for this.
