About

Start a new adventure!! Friendly visitor volunteers are matched with an older adult whose social network has decreased due to reduced mobility, the relocation of family and friends, or shrinking peer group. You will be matched with a senior with similar interests, to meet one hour a week (or more) on a day and time mutually agreed upon. Talk Hawkeye sports, bake cookies, share family photos, or simply chat about current events.

Volunteers will apply with Aging Services, pass a background check, and go through a brief training on volunteer policy and procedure.

Aging Services is a certified Service Enterprise agency...join our efforts and learn more about how we support our community as a team!
