The Senior Friends program brings together volunteers with lonely and socially isolated older adults in Pierce County. Volunteers, 21 and above, are paired with a person based on their interests, location and availability. Friends provide a senior with regular companionship, social engagement and connection within their community. They may take walks, go on errands or share hobbies - it is up to you and your Friend. We ask for at least 4 hours a month of your time to connect to the senior.

Note: MultiCare does require an annual flu vaccine for all volunteers and staff.

Description

MultiCare’s roots reach back to 1882, with the founding of our first hospital in Tacoma. More than a century later, MultiCare Health System is still meeting the needs of patients and supporting our communities, from the Puget Sound to the Inland Northwest.

Our story is one of vigorous growth, visionary leadership and deep compassion. MultiCare has met the challenges of each age - from the Great Depression to World War II to the COVID-19 pandemic - with resilience, ingenuity and teamwork.

Our values serve as our guiding principles and impact every aspect of our organization, including how we provide patient care and what we expect from each other. Every decision at MultiCare will be made through the prism of our values.

  • Respect: We affirm the dignity of each person and treat each individual with care and compassion.
  • Integrity: We speak and act honestly to build trust.
  • Stewardship: We develop, use and preserve our resources for the benefit of our customers and community
  • Excellence: We hold ourselves accountable to excel in quality of care, personal competence and operational performance.
  • Collaboration: We work together recognizing that the power of our combined efforts will exceed what we can accomplish individually.
  • Kindness: We always treat everyone we come into contact with as we would want to be treated.
