Friendly Visitor

Friendly Visitor Program

The Friendly Visitor Program is designed to enhance the quality of life of seniors in the City of Alexandria by providing social interaction, mental stimulation, and emotional support. Carefully screened and trained volunteers are individually matched with socially isolate seniors living in assisted living and health care communities or in their own homes, condos, and apartments. Once a volunteer is paired up with a senior who has similar interests and life experiences, the volunteer visits their senior for an hour each week. Over 300 matches have been made since the program began in 2012.

If you would like to volunteer and make a difference in a senior’s life or you know someone who would benefit from the Friendly Visitor Program, contact Mary¬†Giordano at (703) 836-4414, ext. 120 or friendlyvisitor@seniorservicesalex.org.
