Your companionship is valued and important. Sometimes it’s the little things that mean the most. If you’d like to make a meaningful connection with an elder and brighten their day and yours, we’d love for you to join us.
The program is currently in a pilot phase to ensure the quality of services and the safety of all those involved, so we ask that those who sign up are either students at a university or volunteers for a social service organization. After signing up, you will receive an email for a brief interview followed by a welcome package with guidelines to facilitate comfortable and safe communication with your companion. More information will be released in the coming weeks!
Before your first call, you will receive training and conversation guidelines to facilitate your communication with your companion.
Things you can be a part of:
