Our Senior Companions Program connects seniors searching for companionship with enthusiastic volunteers eager to make a difference. Senior Companions not only bring people together but also generate a ripple of change, as evidenced by this heartfelt testimony from Ms. Angela Parker:
“Doris [my Senior Companion volunteer] is like a role model to me. She opened my eyes that I still have longevity and happiness. It feels like we should have been lifelong friends because she was the perfect match.”
Doris and Angela enjoy catching up over the phone, attending exercise classes together, going out to lunch, and celebrating special events like birthdays with one another. Angela invites Doris to events in the local area and is grateful for her friendship. Because of Doris, Angela has blossomed out of her shell and enjoys venturing out more.
The simple act of connecting a client and a volunteer can have profound effects on both. For clients like Angela, Senior Companions offers a renewed sense of purpose and belonging. It dispels the notion that age or circumstance should limit one’s happiness and fulfillment. Doris is an inspiration, proving that every stage of life holds opportunities for growth and joy.
