Description

Help Adults in Need of Extra Assistance

Through the Senior Companion Program, people age 60 and older provide assistance and friendship to homebound 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, serving 20 hours a week. If you are interested in being a Senior Companion, you must meet income eligibility requirements, and for your time you will receive a modest, tax-free stipend to offset the cost of volunteering. Other benefits include reimbursement for transportation, some meals during service, an annual physical, and accident and liability insurance while on duty. Pre-Service and monthly training sessions provided.

Would you recommend METRO ATLANTA SCP?

by ELAINE D. from Ellenwood, GA (April 28, 2009)
This organization provides services (as I understand them from their website) that are usefull and needed by so many of our seniors. I have always volunteered my time to causes to which I support (tutoring and mentoring kids, visiting seniors in nursing homes/rehab facilities, collecting and providing clothing to homeless shelters for battered women and children). I think this is a great opportunity to help by volunteering.
