Senior Companions


THE ROLE

Senior Companions assist others to maintain the highest level of dignity and independent living possible. Companions help out home bound adults by assisting with a range of activities such as shopping, chores, interacting with doctors, or just making a friendly visit.

These non-medical services help make a senior’s life more manageable. Senior companions are essential “eyes and ears” to family members and supporting agencies involved with the senior. Most importantly, they act as a friend who listens and cares.
