Description

Estamos buscando un voluntario para acompañar a un encantador señor de 90+ años. Él vive en la parte sureste de la ciudad de New York. A él le encanta jugar dominó, mirar noticias y novelas. Él te necesita solo una hora a la semana. GRACIAS.


We match isolated and lonely seniors with volunteers in the community who make weekly visits in the senior’s home. The Friendly Visiting program is an opportunity to form rewarding relationships and ongoing companionship for both seniors and volunteers.

Seniors and their visitor can converse and enjoy the company, take part in activities like going to cafes and museums, share stories, learn new skills, and a variety of other things based on the desires of the companions. You will be matched with a senior who has a similar personality and interests and you can decide together how to spend your time. Visits can easily fit into your schedule because matches are made based on your availability.

Increased social contact helps improve mental and physical health, and helps older adults remain independent in their own communities. Your time as a friendly visitor is invaluable, and you gain a new friend!

How To Apply

If interested, please email Teresa Moisés at volunteer@encorecommunityservices.org with a little bit about yourself. In your email please state what times you are available to meet for a short interview: Monday-Friday in the mornings (10am-12pm), in the afternoons (12pm-4pm) or in the evenings (5pm-7pm). Thank you!
