Description

Some elderly Bloomfield residents have little to no human contact. Others are struggling to stay independent as they age or deal with disabilities. Friendly visitors provide companionship and a listening ear to homebound elderly residents who lack the support of family and friends. Friendly visitors are not obligated to, but are welcome to assist with grocery shopping, errands, minor home care, errands, etc. The goal of the Friendly Visitor program is to connect each volunteer to a senior who they can develop a meaningful relationship with. Requirements: Complete a volunteer application and provide three references.
