Senior Companion Program

The Senior Companion Program places volunteers with various community-based agencies that provide assistance to frail, older persons and adults with disabilities. Through these agencies, volunteers are matched one-on-one with those who need a little help and companionship to continue living independently in their own homes.Please consider becoming a Senior Companion volunteer. Eligible participants receive a non-taxable stipend, mileage reimbursement, meal assistance, and much more. The program is available to:

  • Oakland and Macomb County residents age 55 or older
  • Must meet limited income requirements
  • Willing to serve at least 20 hours a week
