Providence ElderPlace is an innovative program of services for older adults. Providence ElderPlace helps older adults remain as healthy and independent as possible in the community for as long as possible.
In-Home Friendly Visitors:The ElderPlace In-HomeFriendly Visitors program provides one-on-one support to our participants within their living environment outside of the ElderPlace facilities. ElderPlace has locations in Multnomah, Beaverton, and Milwaukie Counties.
Many of our participants benefit greatly from one-on-one interactions; so having the in-home friendly visitor program is very beneficial for them. Support can include, but is not limited to:
playing games (1 to 1 or with a small group), taking walks in the area near their home, doing arts or crafts, singing, reading out loud, helping write letters, reminiscing and/ or engaging in light conversation.
