image_20240626093710

The Senior Companion Program (SCP) is conducting a recruitment campaign seeking healthy individuals 55 years of age and older, willing to serve as Senior Companions to other adults who live independently. Senior Companions provide support to family caregivers. They assist with daily tasks necessary to maintaining independence.

Without the help of Senior Companions, many older adults would not be able to continue living at home and would need more expensive, less personal care.

Volunteer opportunities are available in Orleans, Jefferson, and St. Bernard Parishes.

Join SCP and help make independence a reality for seniors!
