Friendly Visitor Program
Generous, compassionate, devoted, caring, and energetic. If any of these words describe you, then you have the characteristics of a volunteer and Boone County Senior Services would love to have you join our Friendly Visitor program. Volunteers provide a valuable service to our senior community. Whether you can donate an hour a week or three hours five days a week, you’re providing more than a service, you’re offering a companionship and support to someone in need.
Currently we have clients who need a friend. As a volunteer, you have the opportunity to learn new skills, develop lasting friendships, and take pleasure in knowing you are helping others. If you feel you would be a valuable asset to this program or feel like you could add an additional client call today! A friendly visitor makes regular visits to homebound seniors to offer support, friendship, and concern, visits one day per week for a minimum of one hour and listens and assists the senior as needed. This can include such things as errands or correspondence.
