Mission Statement

Senior Companions provide companionship and support to other adults in need of extra assistance to remain at home or in the community for as long as possible. SCP's goal is to to engage persons 55 and older in volunteer service by providing companionship to ease loneliness and social isolation, assist with transportation and light chores, help to serve as eyes and ears to professionals who can intervene in the case of medical or other deterioration on the part of the clients, and give support to informal caregivers.

Description

The City of San Bernardino Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department's Senior Companion Program serve adults with physical, emotional, or mental health limitations, especially older persons, in an effort to achieve and maintain their highest level of independent living. Senior Companion volunteers serve 15 - 40 hours per week and involve person-to-person relationships with the individuals served.
