Senior Companion Volunteer Program featured on WBKB's "Talk of the Town" 

Heidi Powers, Project Director and Field Services Specialist, Michael Blewett, recently appeared on WBKB's "Talk of the Town". 
The segment, broadcast on 5/21/17, highlighted one of NEMCSA/Region 9 Area Agency on Aging's Senior Corps volunteer programs.
 
Senior Companions are volunteers age 55 and over who make a difference by providing assistance and
friendship to adults who have difficulty with daily living tasks, such as shopping or paying bills.
Volunteers help these adults remain independent in their homes instead of having to move to more costly institutional care.
