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.
