Friendly Visiting Program

The Renfrew Collingwood Better at Home Friendly Visiting Program aims to enhance the social and emotional wellbeing of isolated or lonely seniors in the area by matching them with a weekly volunteer visitor. By providing isolated seniors with social interaction and companionship, the program attempts to improve seniors’ quality of life. Most Friendly Visitors will go to see a senior in their home once per week for one or two hours. The Friendly Visiting Program is a free service.
