About

Volunteers spend a few hours each week with a resident of the Health Care Center providing companionship through friendly visits. Time may be spent playing memory games, sitting on the patio talking or taking a walk around the center. The residents participating in this program all suffer from challenging memory deficits and are especially lonely in the evening hours. For some residents it's during this time of day that they crave interaction and "an old friend" to spend time with. Being a Senior Companion requires patience and a friendly encouraging attitude.

Shifts run 5:30-9:00 PM every day of the week.
