Our Friendly Visitor Volunteers explore common interests, share experiences, and build connections with their senior pair. You may also learn something new yourself! • Visit with seniors in their home, community or care facilities every week for 1-2 hours. • Look for opportunities to decrease social isolation through promoting social interaction and activities.
