A Friendly Visitor provides companionship to the resident and valuable information to the resident’s legal guardian through monthly visits. While visiting, the volunteer may talk, share stories, take walks, play cards, or enjoy other interests with the resident. The volunteer writes brief summaries of visits and other activities and reports findings to the guardian. We have clients who are in need of a friendly visitor all over Cuyahoga County so we can find an individual convenient to you!
