Project Details

It’s easy for homebound seniors or people with minor disabilities to feel isolated and alone. Friendly Visitors helps ease that loneliness. Compassionate volunteers are paired with seniors ages 60 or older who are in need of some support. Many of the volunteers are seniors themselves, who want to contribute their time to those in need. Volunteers are available to make daily phone calls to check on a senior’s well-being or as a medication reminder; or visit weekly to combat loneliness. Training will be provided.
