Seniors First

Friendly Visitor Volunteer and Senior

Come join our team of Friendly Visitor volunteers and make a special difference in the life of an isolated senior. Meet new people, make friends, and help the elderly in our community.

The Friendly Visitor Program makes a difference by decreasing feelings of loneliness and isolation among seniors. Volunteers are matched with a home-bound senior based on shared interests, geography, availability, and personality as much as possible.

Volunteers visit with their senior 1-2 hours a week and do things like play games, share stories, write letters, go for walks, and just being with a person who longs for companionship.

Opportunities are located throughout Placer County.

Volunteers will be trained, do a background check, oriented, supported and supervised. Visit our website and download our volunteer application at www.seniorsfirst.org or call 530-492-5409 or email volunteer@seniorsfirst.org

Mission Statement

Provide long-term support and services to help Placer County older adults maintain their independence and thrive.

Description

Improving the Lives of Placer County Seniors In a perfect world, every senior would have enough food to eat, a warm, safe place to live, access to reliable transportation, and opportunities for human interaction and connection. Over 86,000 senior citizens reside in Placer County, many of whom do not have access to these critical quality of life services. Seniors First exists to provide programs, services and long-term support to Placer County seniors so that they may maintain their independence as long as possible. Seniors first is working to make this vision a reality by offering programs that provide:

  • safe and reliable transportation
  • nutritious meals
  • adult day care & socialization
  • visits to the homebound
  • caregiver support
  • home modifications and safety repairs
  • assistance with housing placement
  • information and referral resources for seniors

All Placer County seniors living in Western Placer County are eligible for Seniors First services, including the communities of Roseville, Rocklin, Lincoln, Colfax, Auburn and Granite Bay.
