Make Independence a Reality! Join Senior Companions Today!
You know how much you value independence in your life. Now you can help others stay independent too.
Families in every community struggle to care for their loved ones. By becoming a companion to a frail person, you help that person stay in their own home. And you'll join with thousands of others to help control the rising costs of health care. Whether you're giving families or professional caregivers much needed time off, running errands, or just being a friend, you'll make a difference that strengthens and helps preserve an individual's independence.
Think about it. Your kindness can create life-changing possibilities.
You have what it takes!
If you're 60 and want to share your experience and compassion, you have what it takes to be a Senior Companion. It's that simple.
Senior Companions serve up to 40 hours per week. Some volunteers may qualify to earn a tax-free, hourly stipend. In addition, with Senior Companions, you'll receive pre-service orientation, training from the organization where you serve, and supplemental and liability insurance while on duty.
Giving back helps you too!
When you volunteer, you're not just helping others - you're helping yourself. Volunteering leads to new discoveries and new friends. Plus, studies show that volunteering helps you live longer and promotes a positive outlook on life.
