Friendly Visitor Program

Whatever the age, a loving friendship is always the result.  If you would like to become a “Friendly Visitor” or know of a senior who would enjoy some additional help and companionship, please call or email us.

FRIENDLY VISITORS

This program links trained volunteers, known as “Friendly Visitors,” with frail and/or socially isolated persons fifty years of age or older.  In addition to friendship, each volunteer provides a variety of services that greatly enhance the quality of their friend’s life.  The relationship is unique and as rewarding for the volunteer as it is for the senior.  Many of our volunteers are active retirees who want to continue to make a meaningful contribution to their community.  Others are young people who enjoy and benefit from the contact with their elders who often become surrogate parents or grandparents.  Whatever the age, a loving friendship is always the result.  If you would like to become a “Friendly Visitor” or know of a senior who would enjoy some additional help and companionship, please call or email us.
