Senior Companions are volunteers who spend 15 to 20 hours each week giving one-on-one attention to adults having difficulty with daily living tasks. Senior Companions provide the assistance many older adults and people with disabilities may need in order to live independently. A Senior Companion may go along to help with grocery shopping or for a walk. They may spend time helping to write a letter, prepare a meal or pay a bill. Senior Companions make the lives of those they serve less lonely by offering simple friendship and a helping hand.
