The Cheshire Human Services Committee is in the process of establishing a Friendly Visitor program.
The service will match volunteers with seniors or the disabled for weekly home visits. The objective of the visits is to demonstrate sincere & cheerful interest in the person visited, and to provide an opportunity for conversation with a new friend.
If you have an hour a week to bring friendship and conversation to someone who may be lonely or shut –in, we’d like to hear from you.
If you or someone you know is elderly or disabled and would enjoy having
a new friend, we’d like to know about that as well.
Volunteers will receive training, and will be matched with someone of similar
interests. If you’d like to volunteer, or would like to have a visitor, or simply want more information, please contact: Martha Pickett, 203.272,9420,
or Barbara Barlok, 203.272.7994.
