DESCRIPTION

Friendly visiting can be supported from daily phone calls to seniors, home visits and/or by providing local transportation for errands, appointments, or attending community events together. NOSP aims to match seniors with friendly Volunteers who have similar interests. Age preference is 30 +.

Social connection, development of friendships, sharing a conversation is truly a gift for seniors enrolled into the SVIS program. Minimum requirements for the friendly Volunteers are visit seniors in person every other week for 1.5 to 2 hours, and phone on the alternate week.
