Friendly Visiting

The Canadian Red Cross Friendly Visiting Program aims to help seniors stay in their homes longer by reducing isolation and increasing their health and safety.  Friendly Visiting is one-on-one, personal visits by a trained Red Cross volunteer for an hour, at least once every two weeks, for seniors who find it difficult to leave their homes.  Companionship is the key – depending on their interests, the pair may chat, play a game, do a craft or discuss the news.
