About

Friendly Visitor Program:

Being a FRIENDLY VISITOR is FUN and SERVES a GREAT PURPOSE! Many nursing home and assisted living facility residents never receive visitors. Friendly Visitors are individuals and groups who volunteer in Dallas County (Texas) long-term care homes to visit one-on-one with residents and help out with group activities, entertainment, and beautification projects. Friendly Visitors help combat the loneliness and isolation that is so prevalent in these facilities.

No matter what your age, YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!Children under the age of 18 may require adult supervision. Friendly visitors can volunteer on weekdays, weekends, or holidays. A background check and in some cases, a TB test, may be required and are administered by the facility staff. When volunteering as a group, the facility will often waive the application and background check.

Your willingness to serve our most often forgotten senior population is greatly appreciated. For more information, contact Marsha Evans, Program Coordinator, at 214-823-5700 or mevans@theseniorsource.org.
