Argentium Senior Connections is looking for friendly visitors in Evanston, Glencoe, Glenview, Lincolnwood, Morton Grove, Skokie and Rogers Park/Edgewater.
What we do
We match seniors with a vetted and trained volunteer visitor, in order to form a friendship and pursue common activities together.
Argentium Senior Connections staff will meet with you to introduce our program and learn about you and your experiences. We then carefully match you with a volunteer visitor.
Our volunteers are of all ages and backgrounds, and are carefully matched with you based on shared interests, compelling personal histories, or simply a desire to meet someone new. You will be personally introduced to your new connection, and individual support will be provided to plan visits and activities to ensure the relationship thrives.When you have visits
We help schedule weekly visits for about an hour at a time. We ask both you and your volunteer visitor to commit to one year of visits.Where you meet
You and your visitor can meet in your home, a park, or anywhere that you feel comfortable.
Start a Connection
Our volunteer visitors come from all walks of life, including college students, families with young children, career professionals and retirees.
If you, or someone you know, would like to form a relationship with a volunteer visitor on a weekly basis, you can call or email the Program Manager or fill out an online application today at www.argentiumcare.org/volunteers
