Do you have the gift of gab and are a good listener? Then we are looking for you. In this volunteer position you are partnered with an elder hand picked to match your interests and life experiences. Your only responsibility is to be a reliable friend to them. This is a great opportunity for someone recently retired, a college student looking to expand their resume, or someone who’d enjoy a new friend. Your elder friend welcomes you with gratitude and smiles (and often chocolate). Some will tell you their whole life story and others are content to relax and play a game of cards. Very flexible hours to fit your schedule.
This is our greatest success as a program. It strengthens community ties and is key to keeping seniors from feeling isolated.
We provide the training necessary for you to be successful in making this new connection in your life.
