Since 1986, InterFaith Works’ Senior Companion Program has been addressing the physical and emotional needs of frail elderly throughout Central New York. The program currently has 58 Companions who are matched with elderly clients to provide friendship and companionship, alert doctors and family members to potential problems and assist with shopping and meal preparation, among other tasks, providing clients with the on-going support they need to remain healthy and living independently in their own homes. The majority of Senior Companions help clients directly in their homes, while others work in senior day care facilities, assisting their clients with meals, activities, and socialization.
