Senior Companion Program: Make Independence a Reality

Save to Favorites


  • 4 people are interested

You know how much you value independence in your life. Now you can help others stay independent, too.

Families in every community struggle to care for their loved ones. By becoming a Senior Companion, you help that person stay in their own home. Whether you are giving families or professional caregivers much-needed time off, running errands or simply being a friend, you will make a difference that strengthens and helps preserve an individual’s independence.

If you are 55+; meet certain income requirements; and want to share your experience and compassion, you have what it takes to be a Senior Companion. Senior Companions serve from 20 to 40 hours a week (no weekends). Volunteers earn a tax-free, hourly stipend. In addition, you will receive pre-service orientation, on-going training and supplemental accident and liability insurance while on duty.
