Friendly Visiting

Offering a friendly visit to a client

This service shall provide seniors living in the community with opportunities to enhance their well-being and still feel that they are part of their community.  By promoting their well-being, the Friendly Visiting services will support the independence of these clients and share some quality time by allowing them to interact with screened volunteers.

These regular visits will occur with set times and days.  The friendly visitors shall attempt to relieve loneliness and bring friendship, interest and appropriate activities to visits.  Volunteers will also report any problems/concerns regarding clients to the Client Service Coordinator as soon as possible in order that appropriate action may be taken.
