Senior Companions Program Harris County

Senior Companions Program Harris County Seniors Helping Seniors Since 1974, Senior Companions have contributed to independent living options for hundreds of thousands of adults, primarily frail seniors and their caregivers – helping them to remain at home and to delay or avoid costly institutionalization.

The need for Senior Companions is only going to grow. The number of older people in America is increasing rapidly, with the populations of those ages 65 and older – and, more critically, age 85 and over – projected to double by 2030.

The Senior Companions Program is truly a win-win for volunteers and clients. Senior clients in need of socialization and support find these needs met by volunteers ready and willing to assist. Often the clients and volunteers are close in age and quickly find common ground that enables them to form a true friendship, we frequently hear clients refer to their senior companions as friends they just couldn’t do without.

❤️ 👏🏾 Help me pat these deserving senior citizen volunteers on the back.
I’ve always loved seniors. It likely came from my adoration of my Granny.
Today, I was honored to be apart of the Seniors Companions Program for Harris County’s Holiday Luncheon and Recognition Zoom Program. They were celebrating all of the senior citizen volunteers who (pre and post COVID) commit to socializing with, transporting and otherwise meeting the various needs of other seniors who need assistance.
This is an INCREDIBLE program that the volunteers say often helps them more than those they’ve volunteered to serve. Help me thank these senior citizens for going above and beyond. 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

Please consider giving to this program.
The need is great. I think GIVE65 is a rallying cry for all of us - the public and private sectors to come together and create hope for our seniors in need.

The mission of Harris County Senior Companions is to engage volunteers age 55 and over in making a difference by providing assistance and friendship to adults who have difficulty with daily living tasks, helping these adults remain independent in their homes.

General information

Senior Companions provide companionship to homebound seniors, seniors in hospice care, and veterans to help reduce isolation and depression. Whether you’re giving seniors, families or professional caregivers much-needed time off, running errands, or simply being a friend, you’ll make a difference that strengthens and helps preserve an individual’s independence. And you’ll join with thousands of others to help control the rising costs of health care. Senior Companions must commit to serving 20 hours per week and with the project director's approval and justification of the client's need, some volunteers can serve up to 40 hours per week. Volunteers will receive pre-service orientation, training and additional training from the organization where you serve. And remember: When you volunteer, you’re not just helping others—you’re helping yourself. Volunteering leads to new discoveries and new friends. Plus, studies show that volunteering helps you improve health, live longer and promotes a positive outlook on life.
