Compeer for Older Adults

Become a caring friend to an older adult! Compeer volunteers demonstrate that friendly encouragement and caring support can truly enrich a lonely life. Many Compeer older adults are often lacking the supportive friendships that so many of us take for granted and are struggling with loneliness and isolation. All Compeer older adults are aged 60 plus.

We currently have close to 80 volunteers, of all ages, in the older adult program who are making a huge difference in their friend’s lives. We also have over 60 older adults who are waiting for a friend like you!

Spend just a couple of hours a week, or month and change a lonely life!

Flexible – you arrange your own times and visits.

Make a difference – Our volunteers help in so many ways – some in little ways, some in big ways. This social support helps our seniors stay independent much longer.
