Senior Companion

Get Involved and Join Senior Companions Today!

If you are 55 or older and want to share your experience and compassion, you have what it takes to be a Senior Companion. By becoming a companion to someone who needs a little extra help, you will help that person stay in his or her own home. Whether you are giving families much-needed time off, running errands, or simply being a friend, you will make a difference that strengthens and helps preserve an individual’s independence.

Senior Companions must meet income guidelines and serve a minimum of 15 hours per week to earn a tax-free, hourly stipend.

And 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.
