Special Volunteer Opportunity!
Encore’s Friendly Visiting Program matches seniors in the community with volunteers who visit them every week to chat and enjoy the company, take part in activities like going to cafes and museums, share stories, learn new skills, and a variety of other things based on the desires of the companions.
You will be matched with a senior who has a similar personality and interests and you can decide together how to spend your time. Visits can easily fit into your schedule because matches are based on your availability.
Do you like dominoes, card games, bike rides in the park? We have a delightful senior who wants a buddy to do these activities with. Among others!
We ask for a minimum commitment of weekly hour-long visits for a period of at least six months. Many of our Friendly Visiting friendships last much longer! Applicants must speak Spanish.
