Senior Companions

Senior Companions are volunteers age 55 years and older who serve as companions to other older adults who need help with supportive services.

Senior Companion volunteers are trained to help seniors in need of assistance.  Our volunteers become companions for seniors, helping them get to medical appointments, assisting them with household needs, and helping them maintain independence.

SCP volunteers are 55 years of age or older, no longer in the regular work force, and have been deemed to be capable of serving adults with exceptional needs without physical detriment to either themselves or to the adult served.  If income eligible, SCP volunteers may receive a $2.65 an hour non-taxable stipend plus mileage reimbursement. 

Volunteer Recruitment

If you are 55 years of age or better, no longer in the regular workforce, able to serve adults with functional/access needs and volunteer at a minimum of 15 hours per week, please call us today! Our seniors need companionship and your support.

Training and other resources for volunteers are available!
