Are you artistic? A lover of theatre or music? Meet your new best Senior friend!!

ORGANIZATION: Sunnyside Community Services

I currently have older adults in Queens who love theatre, Shakespere, music, dance, and art . Due to limited mobility, these older adults are in need of a friendly visitor -- a conversationalist who shares similar interests in the arts.

Friendly visiting is an easy, fun, rewarding way to become involved in your community. We only ask for one hour per week (or more if YOU chose)! Many seniors want to play cards or games and go for walks. This is a great way to make a difference in someone's life!

The Friendly Visitor Program is run by Sunnyside Community Services and covers areas of Western Queens including Astoria, Elmhurst, East Elmhurst, Jackson Heights, Corona, Maspeth, Middle Village, Long Island City, Ridgewood, Sunnyside, Woodside, Rego Park and more.

Friendly Visitors are volunteers who visit home bound elderly for about an hour each week in their homes. Volunteers reduce feelings of isolation, and help improve seniors' mental and physical health. Seniors are able to stay in their homes and communities longer. Volunteers can dramatically improve the quality of a seniors' life.

Friendly Visitors receive training, support and feedback from the Friendly Visiting Coordinator.
