Are you the type of person that enjoys spending time with others? Do you enjoy conversations and offering your friendship? If so, you’re the ideal volunteer for the Friendly Visitor program. As a volunteer you’ll have the chance to meet a senior to spend time to offer companionship and friendship. Many seniors remain isolated and lonely due to lack of social contact opportunities. As a volunteer, you can make a difference in a seniors life by making them feel appreciated, valued and cared for. It’s a rewarding experience as it offers amazing friendship for both you and the senior.
