Friendly Visiting

A Friendly Face Makes All the Difference

Elders who are growing old at home can have freedom, but it often comes at the price of isolation.

Older persons are capable of self-care if they have appropriate social support. A friendly face, a call on the phone, and an occasional outing, or a ride to church, can make a difference.

Volunteers are thoughtfully matched to a particular elder and the relationships are enduring.

Results of Friendly Visiting

  • Elders report that their volunteer makes it possible for them to go on living at home.
  • Volunteers trouble-spot brewing problems and help find solutions before the "pot boils over."
  • Families report that their concerns about their loved ones are alleviated.
  • Healthcare providers report compliance with prescribed health regimens.
