Friendly Visitor Program – Neighbors Helping Neighbors

Our Community

In our town, many older adults and those who have disabilities live alone and enjoy their independence. Unfortunately, some are isolated, separated from their families, or are in need of a caring friend. Simple gestures can make a difference; they help your neighbor feel connected to the community. Individuals can remain in their homes for as long as possible.

Our Friendly Visitor Program is committed to supporting our residents by helping them remain in their homes. We do this by matching local volunteers with residents that need supports.

Our Volunteers Make a Difference by Providing:

    • Transportation to local appointments; our volunteers escort you
    • Help with grocery shopping
    • Home visits
    • Chatting on the phone
    • Clerical assistance
