Queens Community House is recruiting volunteers for our Friendly Visiting program, a program that matches home bound older adults with volunteers for weekly visiting to help create a mutual relationship and help reduce isolation and loneliness among seniors with impaired mobility.
Female senior in her 90's is looking for a Tuesday (morning or afternoon) visitor with an interest in discussing books, music, television, art, or sports and would enjoy playing board games or card games together. Visits would take place in the senior's home once a week for an hour.
