Senior Companions Needed in Will, Kankakee, Iroquois and Grundy Counties
Catholic Charities’ Senior Companion Program (SCP) is looking for people 55 years and older who are interested in visiting with another senior who is homebound. Serving as a Senior Companion is a fantastic way to meet new people and give back to the community. The possibilities are endless: talk over a cup of coffee, take a walk in the yard, go out to lunch, shop, or transport to an appointment. This is strictly a friendly visit, no homecare duties are involved. Senior Companions who meet the income guidelines will receive a tax-free hourly stipend and a mileage reimbursement for time spent with clients. You don’t need to be Catholic to participate in this program. Catholic Charities, Diocese of Joliet serves people of all faiths and beliefs.
You too can be a part of this wonderful program that has enriched the lives of so many for decades. Call Deb at 815-724-1157.
The Senior Companion Program is a Senior Corps program sponsored by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), the federal agency for volunteering, service and civic engagement. CNCS engages millions of Americans in service through its AmeriCorps and Senior Corps programs and leads the nation’s volunteers and service efforts. For more information, visit NationalService.gov
