Volunteer as a Senior Companion

Volunteer as a Senior Companion

Make a Difference by Impacting other Adults,
Your Community, and Yourself as a Volunteer

Why are Senior Companions Important?

By offering love and support, Senior Companions forever change the lives of the adults they serve and their own lives as well. Senor Companions remain active and engaged with knowing they are needed and make a difference in their communities. The relationship developed between the Senior Companion and those they serve is the heart of this program. The intangible benefits of being a Senior Companion are immeasurable.
