Become a Senior Companion

The Senior Companion Program is in need of volunteers to help their peers maintain,  regain, or extend independent living. Senior Companion volunteers assist frail or isolated older adults with personal errands, grocery shopping, correspondence, and doctor appointments. They can also provide short periods of relief to primary caregivers.

This program, supported by SourcePoint is seeking additional volunteers who can help other adults live independently by encouraging them to   remain active, providing contact with the world outside of their homes, and building a friendship.

You don’t need medical or technical skills to be a  Senior Companion. All you need to know is how to be a friend.

A Senior Companion needs to meet the  following criteria:

  • Must be at least 55 years of age
  • Can dedicate at least 15-20 hours
    per week to the program
  • Have an individual annual income of
    no more than $23,760
  • Love to help others

As a Senior Companion, you’ll receive:

  • On-going training
  • An annual physical examination
  • Supplemental insurance
  • Tax-free stipend
  • Paid transportation costs
  • Paid sick and vacation time
  • 10 paid holidays
  • The joy of helping others live on their own
