About

A little time, a BIG impact! ElderNet of Lower Merion and Narberth is seeking volunteers of all ages to make regular visits with an elderly neighbor. These visits can be spent chatting, going for a short walk, taking a drive, playing a card game...anything that would interest both volunteer and client.

The visits can be arranged weekly, bi-weekly or monthly, depending on your schedule, and usually last about 1 to 2 hours. They are meant to reduce loneliness and isolation for the people we serve, but they can do a lot more than that! By increasing community connection for the seniors we interact with, the whole community benefits.

Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator Liz Hill at 610-525-0706 or ehill@eldernetonline.org with any questions about our programs.
