What is a “Senior Companion”?

The Senior Companions Program is a volunteer program that provides companionship and respite care to the elderly and disabled. Sponsored by Panhandle Health District, it serves the five northern counties: Benewah, Bonner, Boundary, Kootenai, and Shoshone. It allows low income senior volunteers an opportunity to assist those who need minor help to continue living independently. Senior Companions visit clients in their homes, but it is not an in-home care program. We are always seeking volunteers to assist with companionship for this fun and rewarding program!

 

Thank you for allowing me to be a part of a group that is making a difference. I feel in my heart daily the love and gratitude from those we serve. I feel so blessed to be a part of a program that cares so much about seniors.
