FriendshipWorks (formerly MATCH-UP Interfaith Volunteers) has been a friend to isolated elders and adults with disabilities in Boston since 1984. We recruit and train volunteers of all ages, faiths and backgrounds to provide friendship, advocacy, education, assistance and emotional support. We match volunteers with socially isolated, frail elders and adults with disabilities to provide friendly visitation and help with tasks of daily living – the kind of “services” that often lead to long-term friendships and translate into immeasurable health benefits. We provide escorts to important medical appointments and advocate for necessary health care. We offer the healing joy of pet visitation to residents of nursing homes and provide help with exercises that improve balance and physical health. Finally, we offer our friendly visiting and medical escort services in both English and Spanish to Boston’s Latino population.
