About

Could you visit a senior citizen for 1 hour every other week in their home in Long Beach?

This wonderful gentleman is developmentally disabled and bed bound. He loves people to visit him. He is often very isolated except for caregivers. He loves sports and to talk about the weather. He has limited communication skills but has a million dollar smile.

If you are a volunteer that has an open heart to visit this gentleman for a few minutes twice a month, we need you. There is no personal or health care involved, just a short visit. This wonderful gentleman has been waiting for a committed volunteer for almost a year. Please step up and give just a few minutes of your time. It is a small investment for a big reward.

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.

Please visit our website scan.samaritan.com and click on the LA County Friendly Visitor tab to complete the application. If you have questions, please feel free to call or email Teri at 562-637-7175 or email at thershberg@scanhealthplan.com
