Senior Service’s Senior Companion Volunteers are matched with clients, based on similar interests and needs!
Senior Companions are part of the National Senior Corps program, a Federally-funded, stipend-paid “friends-helping-friends” volunteer program. Senior Companion volunteers, ages 55+ are partnered with other senior adults who simply need companionship and a helping hand. Senior Companion volunteers are matched with clients who live right in their own communities. They visit regularly, offer friendly conversation; help around the house with light tasks, and maybe a bit of cooking. They are happy to provide a quick trip out to the doctor’s office, the grocery store or even an afternoon out to enjoy a local cultural event. The Senior Companion plays a vital role in the life of their client, helping them to remain independent, and connected to the community.
