Mission Statement

The mission of the Senior Companion Program is to provide meaningful retirement opportunities for persons over 55 years old by assisting other adults and seniors who need person-to-person support because of loneliness, illness or disability.

Description

Senior Companions touch the lives of adults who need extra assistance to live independently in their own homes or communities. They serve frail older adults, adults with disabilities, those with terminal illnesses, and offer respite for caregivers. They assist their adult clients in basic but essential ways:

  • Offering companionship and friendship to isolated and frail adults;
  • Assisting with simple chores;
  • Providing transportation; and
  • Adding richness to their clients' lives.

Senior Companions are individuals age 55 or over who want to help adults with special need remain independent and living in their own home.
