The mission of the Senior Companion Program is to serve and provide positive role models and support for older adults to promote independent living.
The mission of the Senior Companion Program is to recruit and train volunteers to assist individuals in maintaining their independence. Whether it is someone who is lonely and isolated, physically or mentally disabled, or someone living with Alzheimer’s disease, Senior Companions help people in ways true friends help one another. Senior Companion volunteers visit the homes of older individuals who can benefit from the company of another older adult. Companions stay for up to four hours per visit. They talk with their clients about the news of the day, share stories about family, play cards, read mail, listen to the radio, or perhaps watch television. Some Companions help their clients run errands or go grocery shopping. Others prefer to simply visit and be a friend.
