Senior Companion Program
Unlock the power of meaningful connections and bring joy to the lives of seniors through our Senior Companion Program. Designed for compassionate individuals aged 55 and older, this program offers volunteer opportunities to make a positive impact while fostering companionship and support.
As a Senior Companion, you'll have the opportunity to brighten the days of seniors facing social isolation and loneliness. Through regular visits and quality time spent together, you'll create lasting friendships and provide much-needed emotional support.
Our Senior Companions engage in a variety of activities, including:
- Engaging in heartfelt conversations, actively listening, and sharing stories to uplift spirits and combat loneliness.
- Participating in leisure activities such as playing games, going for walks, and enjoying hobbies together, promoting mental and emotional well-being.
- Assisting with practical tasks like grocery shopping, running errands, and providing transportation, helping seniors maintain their independence and stay connected to their community.
- Offering a helping hand with light household chores, organizing, and meal preparation, ensuring a safe and comfortable living environment.
- Providing respite for caregivers by offering relief and support, enabling them to take a well-deserved break while knowing their loved ones are in good hands.
As a Foster Grandparent, you'll receive extensive training, including a comprehensive 40-hour pre-service orientation, followed by four hours of monthly in-service training provided by our sponsoring agencies or volunteer stations.
We believe in recognizing and valuing the commitment of our Foster Grandparents. In addition to the immeasurable impact you make on children's lives, you'll receive a modest tax-free stipend and assistance with your annual physical examination. Throughout your service, you'll also be covered by accident, personal, and automobile liability insurance, providing peace of mind. We understand the importance of transportation, and we'll assist with the associated costs to ensure you can fulfill your role as a Senior Companion without worry.
Join us in creating a more connected and compassionate community. Become a Senior Companion today and discover the joy of forging meaningful connections while enriching the lives of seniors. Together, we can make a profound difference in the lives of those who need it most.
