"After I retired I became stir crazy and felt as though I had to do something. Being a Senior Companion makes me feel as though I am doing something good. I want to change lives for the better. My first client was a woman who had vision challenges, but liked to drive around and see the trees. She's passed on but I still get cards from her daughters." -Lois Baker
"I think it's a very wonderful program. I enjoy it very much. It helps to keep me alert and wanting to do something."
"My companion keeps me going and I enjoy spending time with her."
"I started volunteering with the Senior Companion Program when my husband died in 2001. I thought I could help others as well as myself because I enjoy meeting new people. I've had quite a few clients over the past ten years and have met people of all ages and different lifestyles." -Dareen Angel
