Senior Companion Program
Older adult volunteers provide companionship and assistance to other older adults who are often lonely and isolated. Volunteers receive a stipend for their services.
They help their peers with:
- Mental stimulation
- Outdoor activities
- Grooming/dressing assistance
- Recreational support
Companions also serve in adult care homes, senior centers, senior housing complexes, and provide respite for caregivers.
To become a Senior Companion, you:
- Must be 55 years of age or over
- May be eligible for a stipend, reimbursement for transportation and meals, on-duty insurance and an annual physical exam if your income is within the program’s guidelines
- Must be able to volunteer 15 to 20 hours a week
