About

Friendly visitors are volunteers matched with older adults in the community whose reduced mobility or social networks don't allow them to socialize much. We pair volunteers and seniors with similar interests, and they visit once a week on a day and time that works for both the participant and volunteer. The older adult benefits by decreasing feelings of isolation, the volunteer benefits by supporting their community, and both individuals make a new friend!
