The ElderPlace Friendly Visitors provide one on one support with our participants in our social centers and within ElderPlace housing locations. Many of our clients benefit greatly from one on one interactions and building relationships with volunteers. Often our participants do not have a strong support system or enough companionship with others so the friendly visitor program is very beneficial for them. Support can include playing a variety of games with a group of participants, reminiscing or engaging in light conversation one-on-one with a participant. (Car escorting anywhere is not permitted while volunteering). ElderPlace has locations throughout NE Portland, Beaverton and Milwaukie.
