Description

Caring seniors help frail adults who need assistance to remain independent

Through the Senior Companion Program, people age 60 and older provide assistance and friendship to homebound adults and the frail elderly in nursing homes and assisted living settings. Senior Companions may 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.
