You can be a friend and support for an older person in your community.
Caring Companions are Missoula Aging Services volunteers who make regular visits to older adults in the Missoula area and help with daily living tasks and provide social connections. Activities may include helping with simple tasks in the home, assisting with shopping and appointments, going for walks or out to lunch, visiting or playing games together.
Caring Companions may choose to receive additional training in order to volunteer as a Respite Companion for individuals living with dementia.
