Mission Statement

To help older Nebraskans live independently and remain for as long as possible in their own homes.

Description

The Eastern Nebraska Office on Aging serves families in Douglas, Sarpy, Dodge, Cass, and Washington counties. ENOA’s role is to ensure that the older adults have access to a continuum of services that help them to remain active, independent, and in their own homes for as long as possible. ENOA serves as a gateway to aging services that already exist in the community and also operates its own programs that fill previously unmet needs in the five-county area.

The mission of the Senior Companion Program is to recruit and train volunteers to assist individuals in maintaining their independence. Whether it is someone who is lonely and isolated, physically or mentally disabled, or someone living with Alzheimer’s disease, Senior Companions help people in ways true friends help one another. Senior Companion volunteers visit the homes of older individuals who can benefit from the company of another older adult. Companions stay for up to four hours per visit. They talk with their clients about the news of the day, share stories about family, play cards, read mail, listen to the radio, or perhaps watch television. Some Companions help their clients run errands or go grocery shopping. Others prefer to simply visit and be a friend.
