Give the Gift of Companionship, Visit an Older Adult in Marin County

Covia Communities

Lizzy and Richard
Lizzy and Richard are a Social Call match!

We could all benefit from a little more connection in life. Become a Social Call friendly visitor in Marin County.

Volunteers find their visits highly rewarding and many develop long-term relationships with their older adult match. This connection is based on the idea that both the volunteer and participant have much to give to one another, ensuring a reciprocal bond. We encourage volunteers to embrace the experience and stories that come with aging, as it’s sure to give you a unique perspective!

Social Call volunteers:

  • Receive training and on-going support.

  • Are matched with an older adult to whom you will provide friendly companionship and a compassionate presence. Visit in person or over the phone.

  • Commit to a 6-month minimum and make visits each week during a time that works for you and your match.

Bilingual volunteers encouraged to apply.

For more information, please contact Casey O'Neill at co'neill@covia.org or 415-535-7741.
