ElderFriends offers a unique opportunity to reach out to an isolated elder in your community through one-on-one visits. When you become a volunteer companion you give yourself and your elder friend an opportunity to establish a relationship that will enrich both your lives.
Friendly visiting volunteers make a commitment to visit with one elder friend 4 times monthly for a year. Please see our volunteer role description for details.
All volunteers must be 18 years of age, complete the application process, attend training and complete background and reference checks.
