About

The Friendly Visitor Program matches older adult volunteers (55+) with seniors to provide companionship and assist them with tasks such as sorting mail, grocery shopping, understanding bills and writing checks.A JFS social worker will introduce the volunteer and the client.

Some clients may require additional advocacy to connect them to health and social service resources in the community. Other clients may benefit from transportation to medical appointments and grocery shopping!

Volunteers receive training and work together with the Program Coordinator.
