Senior Volunteer Services


Get a Senior Companion
Each Senior Companion volunteer is assigned to a community - based organization or public agency and is supervised by professional program staff. The stations provide the necessary supervision to ensure that the volunteer is matched with appropriate clients who have varied needs and who represent diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
Since 1974, Senior Companions have provided assistance to adults with physical, emotional, or mental health limitations, most of whom are elderly. These clients have difficulties with daily living tasks and Senior Companions help them retain their dignity and independence.
The activities of the Senior Companion may include:


·         Visiting clients in their homes

·      Offering transportation to needed medical appointments, senior nutrition centers or shopping

·      Providing socialization/companionship

·      Assisting with correspondence, paying bills, obtaining community resources, translation/interpretation, and other related tasks

·      Utilizing a self-help approach, provide guidance and support to enable clients to make informed choices

·      Providing respite to family caregivers
