This opportunity is a small committment for a large reward! Just 1 hour per week to talk to a woman who speaks Mandarin. She lives in a senior building with other residents who are mostly Korean speakers. She feels isolated and alone. She has requested to have a Friendly Visitor to visit with her for just 1 hour a week. She lives in Gardena.
Our agency is Volunteer Action for Aging, a Community Service division of SCAN Health Plan. We coordinate a Friendly Visitor program to assist isolated, lonely seniors in their home. Our Friendly Visitor program is free of charge. Share your language, it is a gift to provide company to an isolated senior.
