Senior Companion Program

"Senior companions do what friends do for friends!" Do you know of someone who needs a friend? Senior Services administers a Senior Companion Program (SCP) that partners senior volunteers with adults living independently, in need of companionship and a helping hand. In addition to paying a friendly visit, the companions often perform a variety of tasks, such as shopping for groceries, writing a letter or fixing a light meal. In some cases, the senior companion plays a vital role in the life of their client, providing a

much-needed link from the community to that home. If you need this service, know of someone who could benefit, or are interested in becoming a Senior Companion volunteer, call the Senior Companion Coordinator at (757) 461-9481, ext. 229.

No fee: This service is free to those who need assistance.

The Senior Companion Program receives support from the United Way of South Hampton Roads.
