Visit-A-Bit (VAB) is a weekly socialization program that connects volunteers with seniors who may be living alone or in a senior community to develop meaningful relationships. A Visiting Volunteer provides a form of companionship for an assigned senior in our VAB program who may be experiencing loneliness. Visit your senior once a week for 1-2 hours while providing an outlet for conversation, bonding and rapport building.

  • Visit your senior one day a week and at the end of your visit schedule your next visit.
  • Provide phone calls to the Senior, if assigned.
  • Call the VAB Manager with any issues, concerns or question before and after each visit.
  • Be a companion to your Senior and refer to your training manual if you have questions.
  • Must be respectful, gentle, kind and non-judgmental.
