Senior Services

Senior Services
Through the Senior Companion Program, volunteers age 55 and older provide assistance and friendship to elderly individuals who are homebound and, generally, living alone. By taking care of simple chores, providing transportation to medical appointments, and offering contact to the outside world, Senior Companions often provide the essential services that prevent older Americans from having to enter nursing homes. They also provide respite care to relieve live-in caretakers for short periods of time. Senior Companions not only assist the frail elderly with chores and errands, they also help make the lives of the people they serve less lonely. Senior Companions usually serve two to four clients, providing 20 hours of weekly service. Senior Companions meet income eligibility requirements and receive small stipends. Approximately 13,000 Senior Companions provide disability assistance, home management assistance, and social and recreational companionship to approximately 32,000 individuals each year.

If you are 55years old or older and want to share your experience and compassion, you have what it takes to be a Senior Companion Volunteer. SCPs are paid a stipend of $2.50 per hour, reimbursed .50 per mile on travel, receives free supplementary auto insurance, meet income eligibility guidelines and must serve 20 hours a week.

Join approximately 13,000 Senior Companion Volunteers in making a difference that strengthens and helps preserve an individual’s independence.
