Silver Friends

Love All Serve All - Silver Friends

Core Values

  • Commitment - We are committed to serving senior citizens with compassion and respect.
  • Safety - The safety and protection of the volunteer and Silver Friend is first priority. 
  • Integrity and Trust - We are committed to integrity and trust in all relationships. 
  • Inclusion - We are committed to the inclusion of people from diverse backgrounds.

Silver Friends positively impacts our community by inspiring volunteers to spend time with senior citizens and enrich their golden years.  For many seniors who live in nursing homes, the emotional pain of loneliness is far greater than any physical pain they may feel.

Volunteers meet one hour per week with their silver friend. To build trust and consistency we encourage our volunteers to make a minimum six-month commitment to the program. Nothing is more important in this role than the relationships you develop with your silver friend. These relationships enable you to provide an optimum experience and find true fulfillment in this mission.

The Silver Friends ministry is looking for volunteers with a strong passion to work with seniors, patience, compassion, a positive attitude, and excellent communication skills. We will provide training to help you understand the seniors you will meet with and the setting in which they live.  These seniors have a vast array of backgrounds and it is important to equip volunteers with the appropriate tools and knowledge.  We will also provide volunteers with ideas for their visits.  At the end of training you will be matched with your senior friend and a calendar will be established to track visits.
