Request a Visitor
Our volunteer visitors represent all ages and walks of life. Some of our volunteers are students at Northwestern University. We also attract people from our neighborhoods and religious institutions. We welcome singles, couples and families.
To be paired with a Senior Connections visitor, call us at 847.869.0682 or email Jonathan, our Program Manager, at email@example.com. We will make an appointment to visit you at your home. Jonathan will come to tell you about the program and give you a chance to ask questions. If you like the idea, we will also take time to hear about YOU--where you were born, your family, school, job, marriage, interests...things like that!
The next step is to wait until you are paired with one of our volunteer visitors. At our volunteer training, we share a brief biography of each senior's life so that the volunteer visitor can choose the senior they are interested in meeting. When you are chosen, we will call you to tell you the good news and set up a time to personally introduce the volunteer to you. At the introduction, we'll talk about what you might like to do together and the best time and day to meet.
That's all there is to it! Sometimes it takes a while to find just the right match, but it's worth the wait! Senior Connections staff will check in from time to time to see how your new friendship is going, to invite you to various events and to address any concerns that may arise.
Our services are available to all seniors regardless of background, religion, race, nationality, sexual orientation or income level.
