Hunterdon Helpline is recruiting volunteers who will visit seniors, 60 years of age or older, who would benefit from a friendly visit in their home once a week. Join our Friendly Visitor Program and get matched with a home bound senior in your area. Visit once a week or more. You'll be changing a senior's life, giving them the companionship that they need.
After attending an orientation describing our program, you will be matched by our Friendly Visitor coordinator with someone whose location and schedule is convenient to yours. You will spend time at your senior's home at least once a week for a social visit. During your visit you can share a friendly chat, read together, play a card game, listen to music and more.
Helpline concentrates on identifying and meeting the socialization needs of the elderly in the community. We have seniors who would like a Friendly Visitor. Now we just need you!
