Be a Visiting Companion to an older adult in Isanti and help end loneliness through the power of friendship!

Bring the joy of building a meaningful friendship into the life of an older adult facing loneliness and isolation. As Visiting Companions, you and your friend can enjoy each other’s company at home, out-and-about town, or wherever you choose based on the schedules and needs each of you brings to the relationship.

Time commitment: Number and length of visits to be determined by you and your new older adult companion, with phone calls, cards, or letters between visits. Most Visiting Companions visit every other week, with some visiting more and others less.
