The Center for Youth and Family Solutions matches individuals and group volunteers with seniors who need them – providing volunteer companions to visit, work a puzzle, read, or take a stroll.
Sometimes seniors need a little help with meal planning, reminders for appointments, or a ride to a doctor visits. Compassionate volunteers are matched with seniors to provide consistent companionship and needed help.
Many of our volunteers are seniors themselves; bringing warmth and understanding that comes from experience and wisdom gained over the years. Friendly Visitor volunteers can provide an array of services depending on the needs of each senior and the gifts and talents of each volunteer:
