Volunteers needed for ElderFriends

Are you interested in making a significant difference in the life of an elder in Kent?

Volunteer with ElderFriends, the volunteer-based companionship program of local non-profit Full Life Care, that matches elders with friendly volunteer visitors who help relieve isolation and loneliness.

The program fosters mutually rewarding friendships between our elders and volunteers. Pairs are matched based on geography, similar interests, and shared life experiences.

We currently have many elders in Kent who are waiting to for a volunteer. This is a great way to build a lasting friendship.

If you’re interested in becoming a volunteer please visit ElderFriends or contact Laura Henry with any questions at laurah@fulllifecare.org or call 206.224.3793.
