AmeriCorps Seniors Logo 2022

Senior Companions volunteer with homebound, isolated, sometimes frail seniors, one-on-one, in Albuquerque, Bernalillo County and in the surrounding pueblos. Volunteers serve directly in clients’ homes and may prepare a light meal, assist clients in running errands, or simply spend time with clients providing companionship and friendship. Volunteers may also provide respite services to family caregivers.

Monthly training is provided for volunteers. Senior Companions volunteer an average of 20 hours a week. All volunteers receive mileage reimbursement and supplemental insurance for use of their own vehicle while serving, and income-eligible volunteers may earn a non-taxable stipend.

Call (505) 764-1007 for more information.
