Senior Solutions is a non-profit organization that serves the senior population in Southeastern Vermont. Senior Solutions is calling for volunteers for two of its programs that provide much-needed home visits to isolated seniors. The goals of the Senior Companion Program and the Friendly Visitor Program are to bring community members into the homes of housebound or otherwise isolated seniors to help with errands and provide companionship and to keep at-risk seniors living independently in their homes for as long as possible. Providing these seniors with the opportunity to interact with community members improves their quality of life and alleviates the pervasive loneliness that many of them live with.
The Senior Companion Program is supported by federal funds and there are some age, income and time commitment requirements for volunteers. The Friendly Visitor Program accepts volunteers of all ages, and there are no time commitment requirements.
If you are interested in volunteering, contact Vicki Mastroianni at 802-376-3388.
