Screening for senior companionship volunteers
Author Last Post
Hi Arbor,

The volunteers in our family assistance program clean and visit people living with ALS; those are actually our two most popular requests.  I'm happy to share interview and reference check questions with you, if you're interested.

Hi everyone!

Anybody have insight to share about screening and onboarding volunteers to help seniors with chores and companionship?  We're exploring bringing in volunteers to do that kind of role.  There are a lot of seniors who live in our properties and the need for assistance with chores and positive social interaction has been a reoccurring theme.  

Any tips, guidance, or stories of experience would be welcome.

Thanks all.
