Senior Peer Counseling
After training, Volunteer Senior Peer Counselors provide weekly visits to help seniors cope with losses, problem solve, reduce relationship conflicts, think through options, and maintain sobriety. Volunteers also can provide referrals for legal help, care giving, nutrition, housing and more.
Seniors dealing with a difficult situation, complex issues to be managed, cognitive decline, and/or present safety risks are best suited for this program.
Our Volunteers provide non-judgmental companionship to home bound and isolated seniors.
Through home visits they provide a listening ear, emotional comfort and stimulation to lonely seniors.
program is best for home bound and isolated seniors without complicated
issues to manage, and who could really use a friend.
Options for visits other than the home, can be arranged at senior centers or public areas.
