About

We are in need of 2 volunteers who would enjoy visiting with a nice senior who has pet cats in the home. These seniors have requested a volunteer who enjoys cats and does not mind smoking. These seniors usually smoke outdoors but there is mild tobacco smoke smell is in the home.

We are asking for a small committment of your time. The visits are expected to be just for one hour per week. During your visit you will enjoy the seniors conversation and their friendly cats.

As you know smoking can isolate very nice people from social situations. You can make a difference and be a Friendly Visitor to lonely seniors who would welcome your visit.

If this sounds like something you would like to do, please go onto our website scan.samaritan.com to access the Friendly Visitor LA County tab.

The schedule if very flexible. There is no personal care or housework to do. Just spend a hour chatting, taking a walk, playing card, having a conversation, or visiting with the cats!!!

Our agency is Volunteer Action for Aging, a community service of SCAN Health Plan. We organize and support a very vibrant Friendly Visitor program for seniors that are isolated and disconnected from their community due to health, mobility and income limitations.
