Senior Companion Program Makes Independence a Reality.
Kankakee and Iroquois Counties: Catholic Charities’ Senior Companion Program (SCP) is a free service available to older adults who are homebound. Senior Companion volunteers provide weekly visits to older adults and provide companionship, occasional transportation to doctor’s appointments or to grocery stores, and respite care. If you are living alone and you need companionship or a little extra help to live independently at home, the Senior Companion Program may be able to help you. If you are caring for a loved one and need a weekly break to run errands or have some personal time, the Senior Companion Program may be able to help you.
