Friendly Visiting

Interested in connecting with aging and homebound seniors? Providing companionship to enable an older person to remain socially connected and involved with others? Volunteers with our Friendly Visiting program spend time with seniors in their home on a weekly basis to engage in conversation as well as a variety of activities, such as playing board games, doing an art project or listening to music. . To be matched with a client and develop a very special, mutually rewarding relationship with someone in need of companionship, please contact our Volunteer Services Manager, Laurie Stone Brofsky at 516-569-6733 x205.
