Helping ease the loneliness for the elderly

The Senior Visitors program will hold volunteer trainings soon. This free program offers home-based services for isolated seniors. Volunteers are matched with area senior citizens. And many seniors are waiting for a matching volunteer.

The upcoming orientation and training dates for volunteers are:

August 24, Wednesday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

August 27, Saturday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

September 24, Saturday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

September 29, Thursday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

For details on how to volunteer or about how to refer a senior citizen to the program, contact the Senior Visitors Program at 540/371-2704 or email Teresa Bowers at: mhafsv@mhafred.org
