Senior Visitors program seeks volunteers
The Senior Visitors program will have orientations for new volunteers on Sept. 14 and 19, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Here are the details:
This program matches isolated seniors with trained volunteers who provide a friendly visit for an hour on a weekly basis. There is no cost for this program to the client and the ongoing relationship can make the Senior Visitors Program an especially meaningful and satisfying experience for the volunteer while it fills a void in the life of an elderly person.
For more information about volunteering for the Senior Visitors Program, or about how to refer a senior citizen to the program, contact the Senior Visitors Program at 540-371-2704.
