Neighbor to Neighbor Companions is a bridge to a fuller, more active life for older adults who want to live at home, stay healthy, and remain as independent as possible.

Neighbor to Neighbor Companions

We partner with you, your family, and your health care provider(s) to design a plan that fits your schedule. A trained local companion will then begin weekly visits tailored to support your specific needs — both at home and by providing you with transportation to community activities. You can depend on quality care from our companions who undergo comprehensive background and driving checks, and our experienced staff are always available to address questions along the way.

Customized, flexible companion services ensure:

  • Reliable transportation to medical appointments, grocery shopping and errands
  • Assistance with correspondence, such as paying bills
  • Help with simple household tasks
  • An ongoing resource, advocate, and friend who can help you stay independent and healthy
