Mission Statement

In response to Jesus Christ, Graceworks Lutheran Services helps people experience dignity and wholeness in relationship with God, family and community.

Description

Service Opportunities for Seniors to other seniors

The Senior Companion Program enables people age 55 and older to provide assistance and friendship to home-bound adults. Senior Companions serve frail older adults and their caregivers, adults with disabilities, and those with terminal illnesses. Senior Companions usually serve two to four clients on a weekly basis and serve 15-30 hours a week. If you are interested in being a Senior Companion, you must meet age and income eligibility requirements. You will receive a tax-free stipend to offset the cost of volunteering that will not effect your benefits. Other compensations include reimbursement for transportation, meals, an annual physical, and accident and liability insurance while on duty. You must pass background checks (FBI, State of Ohio and Sexual Predator). Pre-service and monthly training sessions required.
