About

SeniorServ is looking for a friendly visitor for a senior with alzheimer's in Huntington Beach. As a friendly visitor, you visit in the home of the older adult and offer conversation, friendship, and understanding. A commitment of one to two hours per week is all that is expected, which may not seem like a lot, but it will mean the world to this senior. This senior lives with her husband, who is doing all he can to help minimize the disease's progress. Part of that plan is to have the social interaction that a once a week friendly visitor would bring. This senior has lived all over the world and loves to talk about different countries and cultures. She also has a great love of classical literature and enjoys talking about books.

As a volunteer you will be a part of SeniorServ, who provides services for over 1,000 homebound seniors in Orange County, to help seniors remain as independent as possible. SeniorServ's mission is to nourish the wellness, purpose, and dignity of seniors and their families in our community. The Friendly Visitor Program is an important part of that mission. Will you use your abilities and your kindness to help? If you will, please contact us.
