Elder Programs

  • Visiting Companions: Elders who feel isolated and lonely can experience the joy of friendship through friendly visits. Visits with a volunteer can occur at home, in the community, or over the phone for people 65 and older who have few friends, family or other social connections. 

  • Friendship and Flowers: Volunteers make visits to homebound elders and nursing home residents on the third Saturday of each month. They engage in friendly conversation and bring flowers and treats to elders 65 and older with few visitors or other social connections.
ALL LBFE SERVICES ARE FREE OF CHARGE
