A listening ear, a compassionate heart…

Care Partners Companion Volunteers connect to check in, share friendly visits or provide respite for caregivers. Companions often meet weekly, but are free to determine frequency and timing that works for them. They chat by phone, meet in clients’ homes, or enjoy walks or outings together if they wish. All of our volunteers receive training and must pass a background check.

I would encourage anyone who’s thinking about volunteering as a companion to give it a try. You’re not going to regret it. Go into it with an open mind. You’ll make somebody’s life better – and you’ll benefit too!
