Senior companions may provide frequent supportive person-to-person services on a regular schedule to adults with exceptional needs, especially older persons living in their own homes, in nursing homes, and in other institutions. Persons to be served include, but are not limited to, adults receiving home health care and nursing care and those with developmental disabilities.
Volunteer stations, with concurrence of project staff, select the adults in need of individual attention, and project staff, with concurrence of the volunteer station, assigns senior companions to the adults.
Statewide and in each project, at least 50 percent of the persons served by senior companions shall be age 60 or older.
