Friendly Visitors

Friendly Visitors strives to reach out to senior citizens who live alone and need caring and friendly people to visit, call or lend a hand. Friendly Visitor volunteers enjoy one-on-one relationships and helping clients renew their sense of personal worth.

There are a variety of ways to get involved:

  • Ring-a-Day: Daily calls function as a safety check, and also reminders to take any necessary medication
  • Social Phone Calls: Once or twice per week calls to help combat isolation and loneliness.
  • Home Visits: One hour visits once per week to play cards, chat and more.
  • Transportation: Rides for medical appointments or grocery shopping, provided by volunteers.

Volunteers assist with the following activities:

  • Visiting and offering companionship
  • Shopping
  • Transportation to appointments
  • Reading
  • Calling daily or weekly
  • Sharing a common interest or craft
