SENIOR COMPANION PROGRAM
Can you carry on a conversation? Do you have good listening ears? Are you a board game master? Can you use a walking buddy? Would you like some company for breakfast or lunch?
Consider signing up as a Senior Companion Program volunteer! Not only will you be providing positive social interaction to an isolated or homebound senior but also you will be receiving a great companion with the opportunity to build an everlasting friendship!
As Gandhi well stated "The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of other"
Our Senior Companion Program connects eligible seniors over 60 years old who live in Southern Kane and Kendall Counties with carefully screened volunteers who want to make a difference in the life of a senior. Since 1996, this program has been making friendship matches, successfully connecting volunteers with hundreds seniors who were in need of extra companionship.
