SENIOR PEER COUNSELING


The Senior Peer Counseling Program helps meet the individual needs of our communities' older population and offers supportive counseling to seniors. Senior volunteers are trained by professionals to counsel seniors in a self-help approach that enriches and enhances their lives. Their training, combined with similar life experience, enables counselors to help their peers cope with a range of common concerns. Each of our trained counselors has been specifically chosen for his or her personal warmth and non-judgmental qualities, as well as varied life experiences.

If you hear, are you listening?
