About

A lovely senior lady who lives in Cerritos would needs a Friendly Visitor Volunteer who speaks Gujarati. Due to her language limitations, she is very isolated. She has been waiting for a Friendly Visitor volunteer for over 6 months. This senior is 94 yeas old. Imagine the wonderful stories she has to share.

Please help out someone who needs you. You might think about your relative who is alone and how wonderful they would feel if someone cared about their well being. She would enjoy a visit from someone to have a conversation, play cards, talk about their common interests, share a snack, share a memory.

She lives in a pleasant apartment in a secured complex with her own room. We ask for 1 visit for 1 hour per week. No personal care or housekeeping is required. If you have a giving heart, an hour a week to spare and would enjoy meeting this very lovely woman then please access our website: scan.samaritan.com

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. Our Friendly Visitor program is free of charge.

Please call or email to get started on this very fulfilling journey shared by you and the senior. Contact: Teri Hershberg at 562-637-7175 thershberg@scanhealthplan.com
