Senior Companion Program
The Senior Companion Program pairs healthy older adults with frail senior citizens and adults with disabilities to decrease isolation and loneliness with a weekly visit from a caring volunteer. A Senior Companion volunteer provides support through assistance with grocery shopping, errands, doctor appointments, respite care and companionship necessary to maintain independence.
Senior Companion Volunteers:
Are 55 years of age or older
Meet income guidelines
Work 15-40 hours a week
Have a love of serving others
A Senior Companion Volunteer receives:
Nontaxable hourly stipend
A free yearly physical exam
Monthly meetings that are free and educational
If you are interested in being a volunteer or a client who needs a volunteer, please contact the Senior Companion Office at (435) 713-1467 or toll free at 1-877-772-7242 ext. 467.
“Being lonely is a terrible thing, a visit from a single person can brighten one’s day enough to allow them to face the next. You can make the difference!”
