Friendly Visiting Program Offers Companionship for Seniors

Friendly Visiting Program Offers Companionship for Seniors
The Red Cross Friendly Visiting Program is a three year pilot program that aims to help seniors stay in their homes longer by reducing isolation and increasing their health and safety. This companionship program is operating in Yorkton and area with plans to expand throughout south east Saskatchewan. 

Friendly visiting is one-on-one, personal visiting by a trained Red Cross volunteer. Companionship is the key – depending on their interests, the pair may chat, play a game, do a craft or discuss the news. Just one hour a week can make someone’s month!


Training resources and support will be provided. Check out our volunteer Elaine’s experience with the Friendly Visiting program in Ontario.
