Senior Companion Program
Senior companions serve frail older adults, adults with disabilities, those with terminal illnesses and offer respite for caregivers. They assist their adult clients by offering companionship and friendship to isolated and frail adults; assisting with simple chores, providing transportation; and adding richness to their clients' lives. Senior companions receive the following benefits: pre-service and monthly training sessions; reimbursement for transportation; some meals during service; an annual physical; accident and liability insurance while on duty. Income eligible Senior Companions also receive a modest tax-free stipend to offset the cost of volunteering.
Volunteers must be 60 or over and be able to serve between 15 and 40 hours a week.
