Senior Companion

The Aging Office of Western Nebraska and seven cooperating Senior Centers have established volunteers opportunities for individuals for the benefit of frail older persons with special needs. The program matches a volunteer with a frail older person. The volunteer can then provide such assistance as companionship, respite for a caregiver, escort and transportation, shopping assistance, letter writing, reading, or other chores which the older person is in need of and the volunteer is capable and willing to provide.

If you would like to secure the services of the program or volunteer, please contact one of the Senior Companion programs listed at right or call Lisa at AOWN 308-635-0851 or 800-682-5140.
