Companion Services for Older Adults
LSS companion services provide customized support, transportation and friendship for older adults who want to live at home, stay healthy and remain as independent as possible. We offer two companion services across Minnesota.
Our Senior Companion service is available to qualifying older adults across Minnesota. Trained volunteers visit older adults a few hours each week and offer friendship, support at their homes and transportation to community activities.
Funding for Senior Companions is provided by the Corporation for National and Community Service, Minnesota Board on Aging, UCare, United Way, and community agencies through their partnership with Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota.
Neighbor to Neighbor Companions is an affordable private pay service available to anyone. Through this service, trained companions visit older adults in their home and provide friendship, assistance at home and transportation to community activities a few hours each week.
