Thanks to the community spirit of La Fe’s Senior Companion Program (SCP) volunteers, many homebound or disabled elderly El Pasoans have found the companionship and support they needed to lead more independent and fulfilling lives.
Our SCP volunteers (ages 55 and up) receive training on recognizing the signs of elder depression, Alzheimer’s disease, and other common senior health and social issues.
They spend quality time with their homebound peers and, in the process, help La Fe identify social and health-care needs among our community’s elders. After all, who better than another senior to understand if a community elder needs help with medication management, home assistance, or would simply enjoy some friendly company?
La Fe’s Senior Companions gain lasting friendships and the satisfaction of knowing they have contributed to another senior’s health and wellbeing.
This program is a partnership with the Corporation for National and Community Service.
