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 those ages 60 or older in need of some support. Many of the volunteers are seniors, themselves, who want to contribute their time to those in need. They are available to make daily phone calls to check on a senior’s well-being or as a medication reminder; visit weekly to combat loneliness; or provide transportation to medical appointments or the grocery store (as available). Volunteers are not allowed to set-up/give medications, perform any hands-on personal care or provide transportation for individuals requiring wheelchairs.
