Adopt a Family – Holiday Giving Program
Friends make a difference in the lives of seniors
Find your new friend today!
Senior Friends match volunteers with lonely and socially-isolated elders in their Pierce County community. Volunteers are matched with a senior based on their interests and both report that their lives are enriched by the friendship.
As a friend, you’ll provide an elder with social engagement, companionship and connection to community on a regular basis. You can read or play games with your senior friend, take walks together or share hobbies. It’s up to you and your friend.
Social interaction can reduce the effects of dementia, depression and isolation, in turn delaying the need for nursing home care.
