For seniors looking for a companion:
Our Senior Companion service is available across Minnesota and assists older adults so they are able to remain healthy and active in their own homes for as long as possible.
Our companions are trained volunteers who visit three to four hours per week to offer support, friendship and transportation in the community.
Senior Companion assistance is available to seniors who would be able to continue living independently at home with the help of a weekly friendly visitor.
For those wishing to volunteer:
By volunteering as a Senior Companion, you can make a positive difference by providing weekly visits that keep older adults feeling well – both physically and emotionally.
To qualify you must be 55+ and in good general health, have dependable transportation and be willing to travel in your service area, have compassion, patience and respect for others , be flexible and available with service activity schedule, and work well with diverse individuals, families, groups and organizations.
*Note: Companionship is available all throughout MN. Check out https://www.lssmn.org/services/older-adults/companion-services/senior-companion/locations for details on contacting Lutheran Social Services in your county.
