Helping Adults Remain Independent
Senior Companions touch the lives of adults who need extra assistance to live independently in their own homes or communities. They serve frail older adults, adults with disabilities, those with terminal illnesses, and offer respite for caregivers. They assist their adult clients in basic but essential ways:
Offering companionship and friendship to isolated and frail adults;
Assisting with simple chores;
Providing transportation; and
Adding richness to their clients' lives.
Who can be a Senior Companion? Senior Companions are individuals age 60 or over who want to help adults with special need remain independent and living in their own home.
