Senior Volunteer Services


Description

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, adult day care centers, and group settings
  • Offering transportation to needed medical appointments, senior nutrition centers or shopping
  • Providing socialization/companionship and respite care for the spouse or primary caregiver
  • Assisting with correspondence, paying bills, obtaining community resources, translation/interpretation, and other related tasks
  • Providing respite to family caregivers
Senior Companion Volunteers have been placed at the following agencies. Each agency has its own criteria for matching clients with volunteers. You must contact the agency directly to be assigned a senior companion.
