Caring Companion Volunteer 2

Do you enjoy sharing stories or conversations over coffee? Do you appreciate connecting with people with similar interests? Do you enjoy listening to music, playing cards or just sitting on the porch visiting? We are looking for male and female volunteers to spend a couple hours a week with an older neighbor in Fort Collins. Retired individuals and those with flexible work schedules are ideal! Our Caring Companion volunteers are matched with Fort Collins seniors who would enjoy socialization/friendship, while their family caregivers get a short break to recharge.

Volunteers DO NOT provide personal care, direct medical assistance or advice, housekeeping, meal preparation, transportation or case management. They DO provide much needed socialization and friendship, and caregiver respite. This is a very flexible volunteer opportunity. You work with the caregiver to determine a schedule that works for both of you.

Contact us today to start making new friends. Connection matters!
