"Nationally, 6 out of 10 residents in nursing homes never have a visitor." Seattle Times 5/01
Friend to Friend America (FTFA) is working to change that one friend at a time. How can you help? Sign up with us and we will get you started. You will visit one resident who lives in a local nursing home, assisted living facility or adult family home. Volunteers are asked to visit a couple times a month at their convenience.
FTFA has been matching lonely seniors with loving volunteers since 1981. Our mission is to recruit, educate and support our volunteers for the purpose of providing a Friendly Visitor for lonely seniors and veterans in need of a friend. Having a personal visitor relieves feelings of loneliness. You can make a difference. You can brighten their world. There are seniors in the Seattle area waiting for visiting friends right now.
We'll work with your schedule.
