Home visits and walking companionship

If you are a caregiver or a senior living with a life-limiting or chronic illness, our volunteers will ensure you have the care and support you need by providing you with in-home visits or walking companionship.

While these one-on-one home visits do not include help with housework or in-home tasks, they do offer support and companionship. A walking companion can also provide encouragement to get out for some fresh air and light exercise.
