Making More (Senior) Connections

For several years, LSS has taken part in the Senior Connections program, which provides volunteer companions to older adults. Now this great program is expanding to include all LSS communities. Older adults at LSS Life Plan Communities and Affordable Housing communities can now request visits from LSS Senior Connections volunteers. In addition, residents can also volunteer to be a Senior Connections volunteer themselves.

Volunteers will receive special training, including a focus on communicating and building meaningful relationships. Visits will vary in length to meet the needs of the older adults in the program.

If there is someone in your community who could benefit from having a volunteer visit them, please contact your community’s volunteer coordinator. If you are interested in participating as a volunteer, please visit the LSS Volunteer Page at www.LSSLiving.org/volunteer. The first training class will take place in October.
