The Friendly Visitor Program matches volunteers with older adults who are living either in their homes or in long-term care facilities. Through one-on-one visits the program offers companionship, helps alleviate loneliness, promotes aging with dignity, and for many offers a treasured connection to Judaism.

Volunteers typically visit their older adult match every week for about an hour. Activities may include sharing memories, celebrating a holiday, or taking a walk. The time and day volunteers meet with their older adult match is flexible and up to the pair to decide. All volunteers receive training and ongoing support from the JF&CS Friendly Visitor Program Coordinator.
