The Senior Companion Program is a service where volunteers age 55 years and older provide friendship and assistance to senior and other individuals who have difficulty with daily living tasks. The service (peer support) these companions give provides temporary relief for families and caregivers as well as allows elderly and disabled recipients to live independently in their homes.
The Senior Companion program is administered in all three Delaware counties by First State Community Action Agency through funding provided by Corporation for National and Community Service and the State of Delaware.
