Blair Senior Services, Inc.’s Senior Companion Program volunteers help make a difference by providing friendship and assistance to adults with their daily living tasks enabling the person to remain independent in their own home. Drinking a cup of coffee together, talking about their day or remembering yesterday, playing a board game, watching a favorite television program, or taking a walk, being a Senior Companion is a great way to assist our older adults. For more information on participating in the Senior Companion Program, call (814) 946-1235.
