One hour a week can change a senior’s life! Make a difference today!
Argentium Senior Connections, Family Service of Glencoe and New Trier Township have partnered to bring Senior Connections friendly visiting program to Glencoe, Glenview, Wilmette, and Winnetka. We are currently looking for friendly visitors to connect with a socially isolated older adult in their community with a weekly visit. Upcoming training dates, so Inquire today to learn more!
Friendly visitors meet with their new senior friend for one hour, once a week to go for walk, sit and talk, enjoy a cup of coffee or tea together, or even go out to eat or shop.
All volunteers are required to complete a volunteer application, attend a volunteer training, provide personal references, and undergo a background check. A complimentary background check is provided. We welcome volunteers from all backgrounds. College students, professionals, families, and retirees are encouraged to apply. Must be at least 18 years old to visit one-on-one with a senior.
After attending a training, staff will facilitate a match with a compatible senior and personally introduce a volunteer to the senior. This flexible, one hour, once a week volunteer opportunity allows for you to visit when it works best for you and your senior friend. Staff and additional training are available for ongoing support.
If interested in making a new connection with a local senior, please inquire today at 847-869-0682 or visit our website at www.argentiumcare.org to learn more about how to become a volunteer.
