About

The mission of the Friendly Visitor is to provide an elderly neighbor with a social relationship. As we age and become less mobile it is hard to establish relationships and interests. Sometimes family doesn't live close by, elders are less connected to religious organizations and have increasingly limited social circles. For a elder who lives alone, this loneliness and isolation can lead to depression. As a friendly visitor you could turn a lonely day into an exciting adventure. All it takes is a few hours a month to brighten a lonely senior's day. You could play cards, cook together, share stories and ideas. The possibilities are endless! This is a great family opportunity. Your gift of time and companionship is priceless to a elder living alone.
