About

If you have one hour once a week to spend with an elderly person in an assisted living facility in Lafayette Hills, then we need you! The program Dolphin Companions (formerly Dolphins of Delaware Valley) has been in existence since 1978. We match volunteers with individual residents in a senior community, in order that by the volunteer visiting them for about one hour once a week (on the day and time of the volunteer's choosing) the residents have something to look forward to and feel that they matter to someone. We are looking for volunteers that may be interested in learning more about this beneficial opportunity for you to give of your time and be surprised by how much you will receive in knowledge and appreciation of this older generation.
