Volunteers needed to provide friendship to local seniors!

Do you have 2 hours to spare in your week to meet with a senior in your community - to read, listen, and discuss similar interests? If so, this could be the perfect fit for you.

Everyone benefits from companionship and social contact. When you are caring for a loved one, it can become increasingly difficult to meet these needs. By giving just 2 hours of your time once a week, you are giving caregivers much needed respite time, as well as giving their loved one the opportunity to spend time with you! Caring Companion volunteers know that they are serving their community in a meaningful and impactful way!

Volunteers DO provide much needed socialization and friendship, and caregiver respite. Volunteers DO NOT provide personal care, lifting, or transferring, direct medical assistance or advice, housekeeping, meal preparation, transportation or case management.
Support and training is provided. Call us today for more information!
