Senior Companions

SC_0081-M1-e1361015908791The Senior Companion program is a Senior Corps program which Catholic Charities has administered since 1968.

We pair more than 60 senior volunteers a year with other seniors needing socialization, assistance with daily activities and transportation.

The program is a great way for seniors to have an impact on the lives of other seniors. The seniors in the program serve older adults living independently in the community with the goal of preserving independence. The senior volunteers also serve seniors in independent living facilities, as well as caregivers and developmentally disabled adults.

The benefit to both companion and volunteer is beyond measure.
