Many seniors in our community experience isolation and loneliness. Our Friendly Visitor Volunteers explore common interests, share experiences, and build connections with their senior pair.

The goals of the Friendly Visitor Program are:

  • To alleviate isolation and loneliness by providing a friendly and re-assuring voice.
  • Activate social skills and maintain community contacts.
  • Be a Friend, Become a Friend.

Friendly Visitor Volunteers receive thorough training in connecting and communicating with seniors, and are provided with ongoing support and supervision.

Please note: Due to COVID-19, our Friendly Visitor Program is now by phone. Friendly Visitor Volunteers call their senior pair every week for an hour.
