The Senior Visitors Program promotes independence and health for older adults — allowing them to live at home longer while staying connected to their community. The program matches socially isolated senior citizens with trained volunteers who provide weekly, home-based visits.
There is no cost to the client since this program is part of our community service mission.
Our clients, usually 60+ years old, are lonely individuals in a situation that keeps them from getting out of their home or staying active in the community. If you would like to refer someone to our program, please fill out our Client Referral form. If they are in need, we want to help.
Volunteers, 18 years or older, are asked to commit at least 6 months of time to our program. Each week, they will visit their senior client for one hour. Some volunteers simply sit and talk; others go on an outing, do errands, visit the doctor, or find a common hobby to enjoy together.
Volunteers can submit a Volunteer Application to get started. Once approved, an orientation class is required before being matched with a senior.
