You value your independence. Now you can help other adults in your community remain independent, too. As a Senior Companion volunteer, you’ll join a support network that creates new possibilities and improves the quality of life for adults with physical, emotional or mental health limitations, most of whom are elderly.
As a Senior Companion, you’ll instantly join a network of more than 15,000 people with similar interests and values. You’ll help other adults live fuller, more independent lives. Your time and companionship will enable other adults to remain in their own homes longer, prevent feelings of loneliness and isolation while improving self-esteem, and give time off to families or family caregivers.
Organized for Impact
Through participating organizations in communities across the nation, Senior Companions have provided crucial assistance to older adults since 1974. These organizations have clear-cut goals, so you could focus on activities that truly preserve dignity and independence, including:
- Supplying transportation to medical appointments.
- Assisting homebound veterans.
- Delivering groceries and preparing nutritious meals.
- Simple chores, such as light housekeeping.
- Connecting clients to additional resources.
