The Home Visitation Program offers weekly visits to homebound older adults in Genesee and Orleans counties who are 60 years of age or older with a limited ability to get out of their homes. The goal of the visits is to bring a sense of social connectivity and friendship to both the program member and the volunteer.
Program volunteers make a weekly visit to the home of an older adult, stay connected with the member's loved ones and participate with the member in hobbies and crafts. Volunteers often find a rich sense of fulfillment with the knowledge they are reaching out to someone in friendship.
Services are provided free to older adults, along with linkage and referrals to agencies that offer other services. The program has a flexible visitation schedule and all volunteers are screened, trained and supervised.
For more information, or to express interest in receiving visits or becoming a volunteer, please call (585) 343-0614.
