Senior Companion Program

Senior Companion volunteers work one-on-one with the homebound frail elderly.

The assistance Senior Companions provide their clients oftentimes allow recipients to stay at home rather than being institutionalized, resulting in major health care cost-savings for seniors, their families, and communities.

Call (505) 764-1612 for more information or to volunteer.
