Senior Companions

The Senior Companion Program is a peer to peer program for older adults. The program links Senior Companion volunteers with older adults who would benefit from a friendly visitor.

While the primary purpose is companionship, Senior Companions may also assist with variety of helpful tasks including light meal preparation, appropriate exercise, respite care for family/caregivers, occasional light housework, and escort to medical appointments.

Volunteer to be a Senior Companion

Serve as a friend and companion to older neighbors helping them live in their own homes for as long as possible.

The Senior Companion program focuses on providing assistance and friendship to older adults who struggle with everyday tasks, such as shopping or paying bills. Through this program, AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers keep seniors independent longer and provide respite to family caregivers. AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers themselves report better health and longevity, having served their community.
