Senior Companion Program

Senior Companion Program

In need of a Companion?

Taking care of loved ones, while rewarding, can be very overwhelming. The Senior Companion Program can help by providing in-home companionship and respite care to your senior. The program is free of charge and open to any senior age 55 or over living in Sedgwick, Butler or Harvey Counties.

"By having the Senior Companion, I have been able to work and know that my mother is okay," said a family  member. "She has been a great help to my mother and to me. I am very thankful to God for the Senior Companion Program."
