Senior Companion Program

Senior Companions are healthy older adults who help other adults live independently. Senior Companions provide support to family caregivers. They assist with grocery shopping and other daily tasks necessary to maintain independence.

Without the help of Senior Companions, many older adults would not be able to continue to live at home and would need more expensive care.

Senior Companions provide encouragement and companionship to their clients. Some examples of things a Senior Companion can do are: transporting a client to medical appointments, reading books, letter writing, going shopping, medication reminders, visiting.
