The Senior Companion Program is funded through the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) and engages persons 55 and older, particularly those with limited incomes, in volunteer service to meet critical community needs and to provide a high quality experience that will enrich the lives of the volunteers and the individuals they serve. Senior companions provide supportive, individualized services to help adults with special needs in order to maintain their independence. Senior companions provide respite for caregivers so that they can run errands, take a break, or tend to themselves and families. Senior companions are volunteers who make life-changing connections with older adults, assisting them in basic but essential ways and make a significant contribution to their quality of life.
The Program Director has responsibility for development and operation of the Senior Companion Program (SCP) and works with Senior Day Services staff, volunteer station staff, and other community agencies to assure the SCP serves the needs of older adults. The SCP Program Director is responsible for daily management of the program and is actively involved with community organizations, health care providers, and volunteers. The Program Director has responsibility for managing all aspects of the grant through the e-grants portal.
