LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS!
You know how much you value independence in your life. Now you can help others stay
If you’re 55 and want to share your experience and compassion, you have what it
takes to be a Senior Companion. By becoming a companion to a frail person, you help
that person stay in their own home. Whether you’re giving families or professional
caregivers much-needed time off, running errands, or simply being a friend, you’ll
make a difference that strengthens and helps preserve an individual’s independence.
In addition, you’ll join with thousands of others to help control the rising costs
of health care.
Senior Companions serve up to 40 hours per week. Some volunteers may qualify to
earn a tax-free, hourly stipend. All volunteers have to complete 40 hours of orientation
training prior to working with clients. With this orientation, senior companions
will receive training from the organization where you serve, and supplemental accident
and liability insurance while on duty.
Remember, 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.
So get involved, and join Senior Companions today.
