    Senior companions are healthy older adults who help other adults live independently. They provide several hours per week of on-site support to frail elderly clients who may need assistance with tasks such as grocery shopping, light housekeeping, meal preparation, grooming and correspondence. There is no charge for this program. Here are some comments from families who have benefited from having Senior Companions assist their loved ones:

    "I would like you to know that if it had not been for your services and the assistance of Mary, I could not have kept my mother in our home."

    "I was low and depressed after my husband's death. Connie came and picked me up with laughter and joy. She made me feel like life was worth living again."

    "Dad looks forward to his visits from Larry, who coaxed him into being more active and taking walks again when we couldn't get him out of bed!"

  • Telephone Reassurance
    Volunteers make pre-arranged phone calls at pre-determined times to check on the well-being of homebound seniors. Emergency contacts are maintained for each client. Call for enrollment information.
